Like Radio Lazarus, this is a Single Vineyard Wine. The words “Single Vineyard Wine” are a strictly regulated legal designation which ensures that the grapes for the wine in question originate from the specific vineyard which must be registered for the production for such a wine.

The wine is completely unique, to the point that I wonder if tasting notes are at all relevant. The nose is both bright and slightly earthy, showing flavours of fennel, citrus, quince and fynbos. It’s light on its feet, yet very intense and powerful, showing scintillating natural concentration. The texture is reminiscent of tightly woven, layered cloth. It seems to finish forever, as if the record got stuck or time stopped for a while.
