Tasting note

The wine has a vibrant golden straw colour. The aromas on the nose are complex and intense with notes of quince jelly, dried apricots and fresh peach. It has a beautiful floral aroma of honeysuckle and orange blossom. The flavours on the palate are concentrated and intense on entry leading to a silky mid-palate and an almost dry finish which is not clawing but almost refreshing. The acid and sugar balance are perfectly poised.

About the producer

Not only is Miles Mossop the winemaker at the high profile Tokara estate in Stellenbosch, he has been making tiny amounts of awardwinning wines under his own, eponymous label from sourced grapes since 2004. Using old bush vines grown on decomposed granite soils, his Chenin Blanc/ Viognier blend, ‘Saskia’, is named after his first daughter. Miles’ classic red Bordeaux blend is unsurprisingly named ‘Max’ after his son and his trio is completed by his superb botrytised Noble Late Harvest Chenin Blanc, ‘Kika’.
