Vinification: Grapes were pressed whole bunch and the juice was taken to old French oak for spontaneous
fermentation. Colombard and chenin blanc were co-fermented. The chenin blanc is from our neighbouring farm,
Remhoogte, and the block directly overlooks the river from the opposite bank to our colombard.

Tasting notes: Crispy, autumny aromas of wheat straw, citrus preserves and toffee apple with a fresh minerality
on the nose. Gentle entry of dried fruits & freshly baked bread sticks; fresher mandarin and kelpy salinity of chenin
meets the rounded, creamy mouthfeel and tangy appleskin acidity of colombard. Beautiful integration between
fruit, wood and acidity.
