Old Vines White Blend
SOUTBOS is a super elegant and complex white blend of West Coast Chenin Blanc and Colombard.
On the nose some citrus, melon, guava notes followed by green herbs, all creating an integrated harmony between the components.
On the pallet, the fruity aromas of melon, pineapple, and a bit of guava that are much riper but not over-ripe, again are followed by savoury green herbs. A dry minerality balances the truffle-type aromas with amazing sea kelp and salinity.
The finish is elegant and seamless asking for more.
