From the Winery:
"The unique soils must have played a big role in how these vines coped with the dry year. There’s a clay layer about two meters below that must act as a reservoir, enabling the vines to do well in such conditions. We’ve never had a wine quite like this in the cellar. The nose is extremely impressive: high toned citrus and fynbos notes screaming love poetry at your nose. The palate is totally electric, bright, powerful and long. This is my personal favourite of our bottlings to date."
