CHARDONNAY Kaaimansgat *201715.90
The essence of capturing complexity drives the flavour profile of this Chardonnay. Structured with many layered flavour components arising from combinations of best French Oak, yeast, lees contact and finest fruit, which all reward the palate with a kaleidoscope of tastes. This pleasing palate adventure offers hints of litchi, white peach, kiwi fruit, strawberry smoothie and golden tangerine combining to generate a memorable taste experience. Ageing potential is excellent. The wine was left in barrel (20 % new oak) for eight months.

PINOT NOIR Galpin Peak201934.95
Firm and resonating with anticipation, its flavour profile is slowly unfolding. A little patience will offer a generous palate of fruits of the forest flavours and development of complex cherry and dark berry tones. Polished and lingering, it will benefit from ageing. Aged for ten months in French oak barrels, 30% of which are new.

PINOT NOIR Galpin Peak202138.05
Grapes from eight different estate vineyards go into the production of this elegant, refined, well-balanced Pinot Noir. Curated in 30% new barrels, it has good zip and energy, goji berry and red cherry fruit and a racy, mineral-edged finish.
