This vineyard, virtually adjacent to Klipsun, delivers equally good fruit but with a more restrained, feminine profile. Mineral, cassis and cherry flavors are structured on an elegant, firmly sculpted framework of acid and restrained tannins. The oak treatment is just right, and lets the fruit take center stage.
