Keyword impression with evolution in the glass:
green fig, herbal, mint, fennel, tinned peas, lime, slightly medicinal
Primary: grassy, hay, canola field, abundant fruit yet shy to open up. Almost a more Sauvignon Blanc character with aromas of tinned peas, asparagus, snap peas, mint, lime fennel, dill, herb garden, sweet basil, some blossom and floral notes.
The wine is dry with a vibrant lemon-toned acidity. The wine has a medium alcohol, medium acidity and a medium body.
Flavour characteristics of tart lemon and wildflowers persist with a herbal and slightly volatile character. Medium finish.
Conclusion and tasting assessment
Blending fruit from Darling and Franschhoek, there is undoubtedly a quirkiness about this wine. Fairly balanced,the acidity somewhat arrests the palate, quenching the fruit to display a melange of herbs and elder flower rather than fruit on both the nose and palate. That being said, the tangy intensity and austerity of the wine propose a style suited for savoury dishes that will lift the fruit for a sweeter display of aromatics
