Tasting Notes:

Subtle stone fruit whiffs of nectarine and peach with quince and a light vanilla oak backing. Rich, bright and vivid entry with more of the same stone fruit apparent, along with the broad, creamy oak platform. Lovely full, textured mouthful in which nothing is overplayed. The integrated wood notes support and frame the nectarine, quince and even light marmalade flavours beautifully. Keeping it fresh and light is a good line of acidity. The elegant harmony continues to a long, refined tail and echo of fruit.

Although the drought conditions persisted, ideal weather conditions throughout the growing season and harvest resulted in healthy fruit and small berries with great avours and exceptional acids.

This vineyard has a unique history and an extraordinary story of “2 lives”. First planted in 1964 on the slopes of the Paardeberg Mountains between Malmesbury and Paarl in the Swartland, these old bush vines were removed from their original site and replanted on the north facing decomposed granite slopes of L’Ormarins, Franschhoek in 2007 and 2008 where they now produce this single varietal wine. Yielding on average around 2 – 3 tons/ha, the vines produce fruit with great purity and balance.

Fermentation occurred in both stainless steel tank and new French oak (18%) and kept on the lees for 3 months before maturation in an old French oak foudre for 4 months prior to bottling.

Grapes were hand-picked early in the morning into small lug boxes and taken to the cellar adjacent to the vineyard. They were then whole-bunch pressed and the juice settled overnight. Fermentation occurred in both stainless steel tank and new French oak (18%) and kept on the lees for 3 months before maturation in an old French oak foudre for 4 months prior to bottling.
