Wonderful sun-ripe yellow fruit with crunchy apple, fresh pineapple and a lick of oak. The palate is medium bodied and fresh, but with fleshy texture and good weight. A rich fruited core of fruit on the mid-palate builds to a crisp, dry finish.

Planted in 1982 this old bush vines now never yield more than 4 tons per hectare. Unirrigated and planted in weathered granite topsoil and crumbly clay sub-soil. It is called “Kliprug” by the laborers cause of all the numerous rocks on the ground.
Grapes are picked by hand.
Grapes are whole bunch pressed without the use of Sulphur. The juice is left 1 day to settle before racking it to barrels and leaving it to naturally ferment until dry. The wine is stirred once a month and kept in the 300/400 and 500L barrels for almost a year before sulphuring up and bottling it. The RS is natural sugar which did not ferment dry.
