White Wine | FRANSCHHOEK
Each vineyard was harvested separately by hand in the cool early morning hours to capture the fresh flavours. THe fruit was whole-bunch pressed and the juice settled over night. All parcels were kept separate and racked into fermentation with with selected yeast strain cultures. A small portion of the total blend was fermented with new French Oak to add complexity and structure. The wine spent a month on the lees, before being blended and bottled in May.

Tasting Notes


Rupert Wines

Whiffs of fresh pear, pineapple and rock melon, dominate this attractive tropical bouquet. Hints of zesty lime and nectarine add complexity and balance to the palate, while providing elegance and structure to the wine. The aftertaste is pleasantly refreshing yet soft and round with a lingering finish.
