This wine shows an abundance of fresh melon & perfume on the nose, followed by aromatic
bitters and bay leaf on the palate. There is fresh acidity, yet a rich roundness and body.
This artistic interpretation of Verdelho is crafted from a single registered vineyard rooted in the oldest
viticultural soil in the world, made up of decomposed granite clay, situated on the lower slopes of the Helderberg
Mountain. Every afternoon at around 17:00 a beautiful shadowy figure of a mountain nymph appears against cliffs of
the Helderberg, extending her arms with a gift to the world, hence the reason we chose this label to reflect the image
naturally found against our beloved mountain. This vineyard enjoyed the refreshingly cool breezes from False Bay
(Atlantic Ocean) during the day and cool night air flowing down from the mountain, resulting in even ripening of the
berries and good natural acidity. The macro climate is maritime, with cold wet winters and sunny warm summers.
An organic & minimum interference approach is taken in the vineyards to get a true reflection of
the unique terroir. No fungicides, pesticides or herbicides are used, and biodynamic practices are followed.
This wine has been naturally fermented containing no enzymes, preservatives or stabilisers. The
wine was not filtered. It will improve over the next 5 years and may contain harmless sediment.
