Production

Curated in the usual Wild House fashion, 'lazy winemaking' as JD calls it. The grapes, from a single vineard in Paarl, are gently crushed and naturally fermented, with no additions. 80 % in tank, 20% in older French oak barrels. Partial malolactic fermentation. This is followed by 9 months ageing on fine lees. No fining and coarse filtration.

Tasting notes

A fresh, expressive nose with bright citrus and stonefruit aromas combining with lightly oaky notes. The palate is ripe and textural, the bright fruit balanced by taut acidity and savoury, toasty notes from long lees ageing and subtle oak influence.

Food match

Highly versatile, a variety of fish, vegetable and white meat dishes.
