Winemaker: Bartho Eksteen. Despite being wooded, the oak-derived notes of sweet smoke and toast play second fiddle to the wine's prominent fruit core. Aromas and flavors of green plum, lime, white-melon rind and pineapple core abound throughout the nose and mouth, finishing with a hint of flint and fynbos on the close. Balanced and drinkable now, with a medium weight and medium, mouthwatering acidity.
