From older vines that cling to Simonsberg in the tiny, mountainous ward of Banhoek within Stellenbosch. Dry grown vines grow thin and weedy on these vertigionous slopes. The fruit is hand-picked, crushed then fermented at Wildeberg.
Ripe, yet restrained fruit on the nose with citrus, starfruit and gently leafy notes on the nose. A complex palate of tight lime-leaf, bay, wild thyme and juicy grapefruit characters. Generous and textural with a super-bright, naturally mineral finish.
Delicious with brightly-flavoured seafood dishes, Thai salads, citrus dressings or indeed by the glass on its own!
