White Blend 2015

White Blend 2015

Tasting notes

This elegant Swartland white blend is naturally made. Barrel fermented with subtle aromas of apricots, lime, pineapple and creamy nuances. Fresh, yet bold with lingering minerality.

The Vineyard

Organically certified, all the grapes are sourced from The Hughes Family farm, Kasteelsig Vineyards, in Malmesbury.

Winemaking

The grapes were hand-picked into small baskets, naturally fermented and most of them matured in 2nd and 3rd fill small French oak barrels for 9 months.  A portion of the Viognier was harvested early and fermented and matured in Stainless Steel Tank. Our aim was to create a wine with a harmonious palate and a good fresh finish to partner a wide range of food dishes. 11,600 bottles have been produced.

Ageing potential

This wine is drinking well now and will improve in the bottle for three years or more

The Swartland Independent Producers (SIP) is an association of some wine producers in Swartland that have committed to produce wines that comply with specific guidelines. The aim is to ensure that the high quality wines produced give a true sense of place and expression of character of the Swartland.

It is the only movement of its kind in South Africa and the New World and demands an organic approach to viticulture, specific grape varietals and natural fermentation.
