Gossamer pink. Like walking into a secret garden, the nose is fragrant and lush, aromatics of wild berries, climbing strawberry vines and the persistent undertone of night lily open to the moon. Grounding this ethereal bouquet is the mineral scent of moist clay. On entry to the palate waves of cleansing citrus, blood orange and mandarin, coalesce to a bright-fruited core of raspberries, strawberries, cranberries and white peach. The acidity is a keen line across the palate, displaying the great tension imbued by the high diurnal swings of the Tulbagh region, only amplified by the inherent freshness of the 2020 vintage. This saline sapidity runs right through complementing the textural creaminess of the lees, a counterpoint to the diaphanous mousse as the wine tapers off into a dry, strawberry-kissed finish.
