The nose is intense and complex with tropical fruit, gooseberry and passion fruit flavors and a hint of green fig. These distinctive aromas support a wonderfully balanced palate, presenting purity of ripe fruit. The palate weight of Maastricht Sauvignon Blanc is also a distinguishing factor, adding to the prestige of this variety synonymous with Durbanville Valley. After fermentation, the wine was allowed to mature on the lees for a minimum of two months to gain extra complexity.
