The wine has a lovely texture with a long finish and fresh acid keeping it vivacious and vibrant. The wine will be sealed with a Diam cork to retain freshness.
Roussanne is grown by Willy Mostard on the south eastern side of the Paardeberg. The wines are planted on decomposed granite soils.
The wine was fermented at Koopmanskloof in Stellenbosch in a 2000 litre oak tank before being decanted into 300 and 500 litre French oak barrels, about 25% new. Chenin lees were added to the wine and stirred regularly. Malolactic fermentation was not encouraged. After 11 months in wood, the wine was bottled. Only 14500 bottles were produced
This wine should be drunk within 2 to 3 years of the vintage.

The wine has lovely texture and some complexity. Serve with smoked snoek pate with apricot relish, or with a salad of roasted red pepper, Dalewood Huguenot Cheese and rocket with anchovy vinaigrette, or lovely ravioli filled with salmon served with salsa Verde. Roast duck with Honey, lavender and thyme would be seriously delicious with the wine.
