Ripe and exotic with complex aromas of dried yellow fruits, citrus and subtle oak spice. The palate shows leesy complexity with concentrated fruit and a juicy finish that lingers.
The wine has the potential to age for 3-5 years and will gain more complexity and richness over time.
Delicious with full flavoured grilled fish, sumptuous lobster and avocado salad or creamy chicken dishes.
The vineyards for the Tin Mine White all come from our Zevenwacht property on the Polkadraai Hills ward of Stellenbosch. The soils are decomposed granite with varying amount of structure and clay in the subsoils and the slopes are South to South West facing with altitudes between 200-350m.
After whole bunch pressing, the juice was settled and racked to a combination of 500l French Oak barrels for fermentation. The wine spent 10 months barrel ageing on the lees for a richer mouth feel and underwent partial malolactic fermentation.
10 months, 20% 1st Fill, 20% Concrete egg, 60% Seasoned oak.
