Description

Spectacular panoramic views of Stellenbosch and Cape Town, cool hillside vineyards planted to classic varieties, and a modern family-run winery have combined to produce distinctive wines displaying the ripe concentrated fruity accessibility of the New World, with the complex elegance of classic wine styles.

100% Rhine Riesling

A small south-facing 21 year old block of Riesling is home to this limited-release wine. Situated at 280m above sea level on Glenrosa soil, the vineyard is planted to Geisenheim clone 239 on Richter 110 rootstock. Misty weather during veraison encouraged botrytis (pourriture noble) which concentrated the flavours and sugars.

The grapes were hand-selected and harvested on 1 March 2008. The utmost patience was needed to make this wine, taking the whole day to press the raisined berries.The juice was racked into a stainless steel tank and fermented at 16 - 17?øC with a specially selected strain of yeast capable of handling higher sugars.

Delicate, floral and fresh ripe apricot bouquet with a limey citrus twist. Sun-dried peach and apricot flavours with a well-balanced acidity add elegance to the long rich finish.

The name 'Mellifera' stems from the Latin name for the European Honeybee - Apis Mellifera.
