Winemaker's Notes

Made in a highly reductive way in order to maximize the fruit personality of the vintage, the 2008 shows more marked fruit aromatics than usual, while maintaining the typical Southern Right balance of Old World minerality and length with hints of New World palate coverage and body. 2008 is a wine that favours origin expressive individuality, minerality and palate complexity ahead of pure, pungent varietal aroma. A percentage of fruit from clay-rich soil has added an intense mid-palate structural component and addition overall complexity to this wine.

"Gooseberry, pepper, fresh herbs and licorice on the nose and palate. Vibrant and varietally accurate; at once rich and gripping, with uncompromising dryness. Finishes brisk and perfumed, with lively hints of lemon peel and quinine. These vines are planted in a cool site barely two miles from the South Atlantic. Anthony Hamilton Russell is a co-founder here."
