Region: Western Cape
This expressive, barrel-fermented Viognier seduces you with the beautiful perfume of honeysuckle and orange blossom and a textured palate of apricot, kiwi and pineapple. A sensual and exotic experience.
This Viognier is a reflection of the winemaker's obsession with how the special soil, climate and a mysterious sense of place come together to produce an extraordinary wine that tells you its story. The vines are grown on rose-quartz soils in Elgin, which is a cool, high altitude plateau. The region offers a lengthened ripening period which brings the grapes late into season- often three to four weeks later than traditional wine growing areas in South Africa. This provides the opportunity to develop deep complexity and concentration.
