  • Notes: On the nose: lively green apples with light hints of kumquat awaken the senses. A mist covered spring morning in Stellenbosch comes to mind as aromas of wettened granite and lime soils become very noticeable. Palate: a subdued richness of earth along with reassuring acidity allows the Crouchen to stand out among other white cultivars. An extremely well-structured mid palate grounds the wine while a zesty finish cleanses the palate. By allowing the wine to go through a secondary fermentation, namely malolactic fermentation, we have ensured that a silky texture runs from the front to the hind palate. A rare cultivar brought back to life, a tribute to those who had been unfairly forgotten.
