This wine has a nose of ripe, green citrus fruit and floral elements. The palate is fairly full and richly textured with mineral notes. The finish is fresh.
To the north of Cape Town is the large district of Swartland. This district was considered to be a source for inexpensive, large-yielding grapes and wine for many years. However, in recent, Swartland has undergone a considerable transformation to be a center for more premium wine production. Old-vine Chenin Blanc, Syrah, and Cape blends tend to be well-recognized from this area in particular. To enhance fruit concentration and produce higher quality wines, producers can dry-farm (grow without irrigation) to lower their yields.
