Planted on the rockiest sandstone slopes of Waterford Estate in 2005.
Winter was cut a little short with an early rise in temperatures, the growing season remained warm and dry bringing the harvest dates slightly forward. Moderate to cool conditions during ripening resulted in wines with expressive aromatics and flavours. Exceptional white and red wines from this vintage, very classic in style with tight dry tannin structures which make for excellent aging potential.
No new wood is used in the making of this wine. Whole berry ferments and soft extraction methods by means of only pump overs which brings out the purity in this wine.
Pairs well with lean red meats such as venision as well as a variety of earthy components.
