Tasting Notes
Crystal- clear, with a salmon pink colour, quite consistent.
The nose opens with fruity scents followed by a riot of fruity notes. The blend expresses the typical scents of the vines that compose it: fresh melon and stone fruit (peach blossom, almond, plum, apricot, and cherry) for Chenin Blanc and strong hints of ripe red berry fruit for the Pinotage.
In the mouth it is pleasant, fresh and with an overall structure. Persistent with an important aftertaste of ripe fruit.
Sample tasted in combination with a fried fish.
