Our meal suggestions: 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.
The wine itself: 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.
What about the grapes? 55% Viognier,  25% Muscat de Frontignon,  20% Gewürztraminer
And the vineyards (terroir): Our three 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.
How was it made: We machine picked all three varietals at 22 – 23,7 degrees Balling.  The wine was tank fermented separately at 14 degrees Celsius to retain fresh fruit and floral aromas. They were blended shortly after fermentation and bottled early to retain freshness and vitality.
Should this wine age / mature: A wine to be enjoyed within 2 years.
