Haut Espoir, Cloudfall, Franschhoek, South Africa, 2019
Cloudfall is just as delicious and just as impressive as its red counterpart, Gentle Giant. Comprised of no less than five white grapes, dominated by Sauvignon Blanc with a supporting cast of Semillon, Viognier, Chenin Blanc and a splash of wild fermented Chardonnay which undergoes fermentation in old oak barrels. The use of old oak gives the wine texture and body without imparting the same flavour profile of new oak.
The wine is rich, whilst being incredibly elegant and finessed, with notes of white stone fruits and tropical fruits all held together with a fresh and vibrant acidity.
