Tasting Notes

Yellow-gold and limpid in appearance, with pale green hues. A heady blend of exotic floral notes and green herbal aromas are bolstered by mellow barrel fermentation characters. Fresh and finely textured, the palate bursts with flavours of passion fruit, white peach and ginger spice, with well -integrated oak lending structure and fullness to the freshly cleansing finish.  


Maturation

4-5 years

Barrel Aging

Select parcels of vines were chosen to represent the finest attributes of Klein Constantia fruit. Barrel fermentation of the various components took place in 500ℓ French oak barrels, before being blended. The wine matured on fine yeast lees for 11 months prior to bottling in February 2006.
