Even though this is the same cultivar, it’s a blend of terroirs. We are blessed in the Western Cape to have these diverse terroirs which can be used to blend a classic style wine that no one else in the world can replicate. My job is to find which old vines (terroirs) complement each other. Just before bottling I make up the blend to highlight the beauty of the specific vintage.
This wine was released in 2019 and because of minimal interference and no additions barring some sulphites, this classic wine has the potential to age for 30+ years.
