5 Stars 2017 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
From young mixed vineyard next to Alheit’s Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge cellar – roussanne, chenin, & verdelho. Roussanne-led 15 evokes sunny floral charm, graceful, gentle texture, very long. Unobtrusive 14.5% alcohol. Native ferment, 60% older oak, rest cement egg.

A ripe style, with notes of mango and papaya interwoven with yellow apple and melon flavors, caressed by salted butter and heather accents through the lush finish. A hedonist’s delight. Roussane, Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay and Verdelho.
