Miles Mossop 2018 Cape Winemakers Guild Saskia-Jo White (Swartland)

Winemaker: Miles Mossop. Ripe apple flesh, white melon rind, lime pith and a touch of rambutan form the nose of this clean, attractive white. A blend of 65% Chenin Blanc, 25% Clairette Blanche and 10% Grenache Blanc, hints of lanolin and just-dried grass add depth and interest, with a waxy characteristic that's pleasantly attractive. The palate is medium in weight and strikes a superb balance between ripe fruit tones and bright, vibrant acidity, walking a masterful tightrope between the two. The finish shows notes of yellow apple, firm pear, citrus pith and waxy melon rind that hang around nicely. Lauren Buzzeo
