From the Importer:
"An Exploration of Cape Heritage. Concept: (meaning the study of maps) is a vinous exploration of Cape heritage. It is intended to be a picture of the Cape, seen through the lens of her mature vineyards, in a given vintage. Therefore, the cuveé is composed of rare and extraordinary parcels of mature dryland bushvines. Naturally, the varieties used are also heritage varieties, namely Chenin blanc and Semillon. They have been planted in the Cape for centuries.
Cartology 2014 is our favorite so far. The wine is very alive and vibrant. Obviously it’s just a baby, but so far has a nose of lime, fennel and quince. The palate taught, very fine and balanced, with excellent structure and a persistent finish."
