Rickety Bridge Foundation Stone White 2018
(R696.00 for 6 x 750ml)
All 5 varietals contribute to this complete and well balanced wine. Elegant with spring blossoms, restrained peach, mango and stone fruit on the nose. Subtle hints of oak spice and a refined fruit expression. A rich and well-structured wine that finishes with elegance and freshness on the palate. Will benefit from some ageing.

Vineyards planted in decomposed granite and sandy soils with north and westerly facing slopes were identified in the Franschhoek and Stellenbosch areas to make this Mediterranean-style blend. Well-manicured and settled vines yielding between 5 - 6 tonnes / ha. Grapes were harvested by hand between 22.2°B – 23°Balling with good harvesting conditions throughout.
Naturally fermented in barrels at 16˚C. The grapes were pressed gently up to 0.9 Bar pressure after a short period of skin contact. Partial malolactic fermentation took place in older 225L French oak barrels and a 2,500L oak Foudre. All five varietals were matured separately in barrel for a total maturation time of 10 months before being blended for bottling.
An excellent companion with Asian influenced chicken and seafood dishes, goats cheese salad, pork, veal or roast duck.
