Tasting Notes:

Attractive dried stone fruit, yellow apple and ripe mango on the nose, with subtle hints of vanilla and wild flowers. The palate has ripe peach and apricot richness, seamlessly woven into a well-rounded and creamy mouthfeel. The rich flavours are delicately held together by gentle acidity supplying a long, juicy finish.

The Riebeeksrivier farm is situated on the slopes of the Kasteelberg, overlooking the Swartland towards the iconic Table Mountain. Its unique terroir, especially the shale soils, expresses itself strongly in the wine with unique varietal characteristics. Two bushvine vineyards, planted in 1988 and 2013 on south facing slopes at elevations of 350 – 400m above sea level, yield fruit of great intensity and richness balanced by bright acidity and length.
