THE GOOD GUYS MUSE
Clear yellow colour. A beautiful forthcoming nose of fine straw and peach pith. Slight honey and salted liquorice, with peach pith and slate on the palate. A vibrant palate with a lot of flavours found across the mouth. Needs some time and air in glass to express itself best. Peach pith, slate and fennel on pallet, also a very persistent and long palate. Peppercorns, herbaceous wild rosemary /renosterveld is found all along the journey in this wine. Drink now till 2028. Ideal on its’ own, but best enjoyed with seafood and lamb.

Handpicked and sorted in the vineyards, it is done early morning to ensure cool grapes arrive at the cellar. In 2018 I decided to do more whole-bunch pressing, in a basket press and about 20% gentle crushing and soaking (2hours). The juice is barrel fermented in 400 and 700L French oak barrels, about 10% new oak for 10 months, and left on the lees, which adds a lot of texture and balance. Lightly fined with bentonite, unfiltered, and bottled by hand.
