Description

The fifth vintage of this single cultivar expression from Slanghoek (approx 1.5 hours drive from Cape Town). The ideal wine for summer.

In the vineyard
Slaghoek fruit, sourced from the Opstal Estate farm.
In the cellar
The free run juice of the fruit was pressed into seasoned french oak barrels and allowed to naturally ferment under cool conditions. The slow cool fermentation allows for the preservation of the beautiful aromatics of the wine. The wine was then bottled unfiltered, to add a roundness to the mouth feel of the wine.
