Miles Mossop Wines Saskia-Jo 2018
65% Chenin Blanc, 25% Clairette Blanche, 10% Grenache Blanc
The three bush-vine vineyards used to make this wine are all situated on the northern slopes of the Paardeberg mountain in the Swartland, growing in decomposed granite soils. The fruit was whole-bunch pressed together and the juice co-fermented naturally in a 700 litre concrete egg, where it matured for a total of 11 months before being bottled without fining and filtration. Only a small amount of SO2 was added in the making of this wine, giving a true expression of the sites and the region.
Tasting Notes: Stunning perfume of citrus blossom underpinned by stone fruit and orange preserve notes. The flavours are full and rich, yet the mid-palate is focused and clean; leading to a dry, almost pithy finish.
21 cases of this wine were previously sold on the 2020 Auction.
Ready for drinking now, but will improve with maturation for a further 7 years.
This wine is packed in a wooden box.
