A tight, elegant wine with waxy stone fruit and soft, spicy vanilla aromas. The wine has a lovely texture with a long, layered finish.
This wine will gain complexity in bottle for at least five years from vintage.
Roussanne is grown by Willy Mostert on the south eastern side of the Paardeberg. The vines are planted on decomposed granite soils.
The wine was fermented at Koopmanskloof in Stellenbosch in 500-litre French oak barrels. About 50% was in brand new, super tight grain barrels and the balance in neutral oak. After nine months in wood, the wine was bottled.
Total production 2,750 bottles.
Every now and again we hear of a parcel of grapes with an interesting story or
discover a vineyard that gets our creative juices flowing. This range of wines
comprises small volume, premium wines from exclusive and sustainably-farmed
vineyards. Roussanne, native to the warmer regions of France’s Rhone valley, is a relative newcomer and still very rare in South Africa. There are fewer than 10 South African producers and we are proud to be ranked among the top.
Made in Paarl, South Africa.
