The long wild yeast ferment provides bready aromas and additional complexity to the wine. Dried herbaceous notes, including fennel and aniseed from the nearby Fynbos, dominate the nose, followed by a creamy lemon character. The palate is reminiscent of the nose, with great textural complexity (attributable to the long, slow wild yeast fermentation), and more herbal characters.
Notes of mulberries, redcurrant and blackcurrant, with a bitter-sweet character of crème de cassis with a touch of underlying parma violets. The taste is extremely fine red- fruit, raspberries come to the fore and are backed up with a touch of buttery chocolate truffle richness. A mid-weight harmonious wine, an expression of purity and youthful fruitiness
