Winemaker: Johan Malan. This Rhône-style blend of 60% Roussanne and 40% Marsanne leads with ripe aromas of yellow apple, melon rind, lime zest and hints of toast and flinty mineral. Medium in weight, the palate shows good balance between the rich fruit flavors and ample acidity to cut through the finish. A lightly toasty, peach pit accent unfolds on the close. Drink now–2021.
