South African White Blends always offer something different. There is a lovely mystery – let’s call it an old world-esque quality to the wine, made up of primary, secondary, and more developed nuances. Aromas of elderflower, yellow apple, mandarin, soft passionfruit, pouched pears, thyme, dill, and white pepper offer the first impression, followed by orange marmalade, cinnamon and ginger.
Tasting the wine, the taste of freshly cut nectarines and big fleshypears affirms its ripe, fruit-forward character. Then – on the outerperiphery – especially as the wine evolves in the glass, aromas ofalmond skin, vanilla, chamomile, and jasmine tea become more prominent and continue on the aftertaste of t he wine. Still, the push-pull of fruit sweetness, its savoury medley of mint and fennel, lemony acidity and a wet stone salinity leaves you salivating for more. The wine is complex with medium intensityand a discerningly chalky grip adding power and length to this delicate character of the wine.
