Curated in the usual Wild House fashion, 'lazy winemaking' as JD calls it. The grapes, from a single vineyard in Paarl, are gently crushed and naturally fermented, with no additions. 80 % in tank, 20% in older French oak barrels. Partial malolactic fermentation. This is followed by 9 months ageing on fine lees. No fining and coarse filtration.
Surprisingly crisp and refreshing, a good thirst quencher with lovely tropical stone notes and juicy finish
A fresh, expressive nose with bright citrus and stonefruit aromas combining with lightly oaky notes.
The palate is ripe and textural, the bright fruit balanced by taut acidity and savoury, toasty notes from
long lees ageing and subtle oak influence
