Cellar The wine was fermented at our rented cellar on Koopmanskloof farm in Stellenbosch. We whole bunch pressed the grapes and settled the juice in tank before moving to 500 litre French oak barrels, about 25% new. Natural yeast was used to ferment the Roussanne. Malolactic fermentation was discouraged. After 11 months in wood, the wine was bottled. Only 2400 bottles were produced.
FoodSuggest The wine has lovely texture and some complexity. Serve with smoked snoek pate with apricot relish or with a salad of roasted red peppers, Dalewood Huguenot cheese and rocket with anchovy vinaigrette, or salmon ravioli with salsa verde. Roast duck with honey, lavender and thyme would be seriously delicious with the wine too.
Variety Roussanne
Vineyard Roussanne is grown by Willy Mostert on the south eastern side of the Paardeberg. The wines are planted on decomposed granite soils.
