Tasting Notes

Golden colour. A perfumed nose with lots of fruit, floral and spicey aromas. Flavours of litchi, lime and yellow fruit. A complex aromatic wine, with well-balanced sugar and acidity, this wine provides a long crisp finish with layers of fruit and floral tones.

70% Viognier, 30% Muscat de Frontignon

Food Suggestions

Enjoy as an aperitif on a cold winters day, or as a refreshing drink on Summer days with friends, served pleasantly cold.This is the Asian cuisine wine extraordinaire.  The exquisite flavours in this wine pair beautifully with light fragrant curries, or Moroccan inspired dishes.  Use your flair to discover your favourite combination. 

In The Vineyard

Our two most aromatic varietals on the farm compose this wine. These cultivars have beautiful fruit and spicey floral aromas. The vineyards are situated on South-West facing slopes with a North-South row direction for optimal sun exposure and flavour development.

About The Harvest

We hand picked both the Viognier and Muscat de Frontignon at 22° - 23° Balling.

In The Cellar

We hand picked both the Viognier and Muscat de Frontignon at 22-23 degrees Balling.  Both the varieties were tank fermented at 12-14 degrees Celsius to retain fresh fruit and floral aromas. They were blended shortly after fermentation and bottled early to retain freshness and vitality. A wine to be enjoyed within 2-3 years.
