In The Cellar
This wine is almost entirely barrel fermented, with a small portion being aged in concrete egg to add a component of body. We handled the wine as carefully and naturally as possible, giving it only a light fining and then bottling with minimal filtration.
In The Vineyard
“This deliciously complex white is a barrel-fermented blend of 54% Roussanne, 30% Chenin Blanc, 9% Verdelho and 7% Viognier. All sourced from a single vineyard at the entrance of the Stark-Conde Oude Nektar farm in the Jonkershoek Valley ward in Stellenbosch, it is planted to a mix of varietals in order to match the complex mosaic of soil types found on this unique plot of land. This is a fabulously complex and characterful fine wine that pays homage to this ancient lost art of winemaking and serves to reinvigorate the entire White Blend category for which South Africa is undoubtedly a world leader.”
