The wine has a clean nose with a medium aroma intensity. The aromas are fully developed. The aromas have herbal and fruity characteristics. We smell a combination of rose hips, canned strawberries, rooibos tea and alpine herbs, which reminds us of a herbal drink.
A dry wine with medium acidity and medium-high alcohol (13.5%). The wine has a rather light character: it is not very strong-bodied (medium-), has a medium flavor intensity and low tannins. The palate of the wine has fruity, vegetable and herbaceous characteristics. We taste rose hips and rooibos, caramellized sugar, in combination with more vegetable flavours from tamarillo, beetroot, many herbs and some hints of white pepper.
A very excentric and fascinating wine. Well made and balanced but might be tasted too late and past its peak, since all fresh fruity aromas have disappeared and the wine shows some oxidative characteristics. Nevertheless a good wine. Not suitable for further ageing.
