Veritas 2002 - Bronze
Light lemon yellow colour. Very appealing scents of honey, nuts, and raisins topped with a hint of spice. Fresh and lively palate with lots of sweet Muscat fruitiness. Nice acid to balance the sweetness and give the finish a lift.
Add crushed ice for a long summer cooler or good with desserts like baked apple with honey and raisins or any banana desserts.
In The Vineyard
Vines planted in Estcourt type, weathered granite topsoil on a layer of gravel, above a crumbly clay sub soil. Yield of 8 tons per hectare.
About The Harvest
Cold morning grapes were picked, destalked, crushed and pumped into red wine fermenters where enzymes for flavour extraction were added.
In The Cellar
24-hour skin contact was given before being lightly pressed. The juice was settled clean and treated with Bentonite to make protein stable before being fortified to 17,5% Alc. The wine was sent to SBM for bottling.
