Full Moon White 2018
These wines are inspired by the light yet complex and textured wines grown on the volcanic slopes of Mount Etna, Sicily. While driving around the Grenache vineyard our viticulturist friend mentioned a field blend vineyard planted in 1977 in the Paardeberg with 10 interplanted varieties. “Yes we’d love to buy a ton of that if we could!” And so it was. On 7 February the grapes were picked: Chenin Blanc, Palomino, Semillon, Semillon Gris, Colombard, Crouchen Blanc, Viognier, Muscat d’Alexandrie, Chardonnay & Sauv Blanc vines, all growing amongst each other. These were whole-bunch pressed and left to ferment naturally, then aged in one old 500L for a whole year. Naturally of various ripeness levels at picking time, the variation in flavour and acidity makes for an exceptionally interesting character, one that makes field blend like this so rewarding to make and so unique to drink. Cheers! 600 bottles made.
