Fresh aromas of pear, green apple and white peach are complemented by a floral note of peach blossom. The palate brings flavours of melon, quince and lemon with a delicate yet zippy acidity. The wine is elegant in weight but satisfying in texture and length.

Grapes were hand-picked in the early morning at Cavalli in two separate pickings. Grapes were whole bunch pressed and settled overnight to achieve good clarity of juice. Two separate ferments took place using two yeast strains selected to enhance fruity aromas and retain varietal expression. The batches retained good natural acidity and no addition of acid was necessary.

The Estate
Cavalli Wine Estate is located on the outskirts of Stellenbosch, South Africa in an area known as the Helderberg also known as the Golden Triangle due to the exceptional quality of wines that are produced in this region.
With 27ha of vineyards planted in rich koffieklip soils and cooled by late afternoon breezes from False Bay our vineyards benefit tremendously by the unique terroir in which the vines are planted. The utmost care is taken to ensure that the vineyards are meticulously farmed for the production of only the most premium quality fruit. Cavalli Wine Estate is home to some of the best Chenin blanc and Cabernet sauvignon in the region, both of which have been at the helm of producing award winning wines.
