Tight, focused and beautifully integrated with herbal (fynbos), grapefruit flavours, ripe tropical notes, and a long, focused aftertaste. Enjoy with fresh seafood. Probably one of our best vintages ever and without a doubt one of the great white wines of the world. Total production amounts to 2643 standard bottles. Stock piling is recommended!!
