Stark-Condé The Field Blend 2018 / 19
(R1,350.00 for 6 x 750ml)
Stylistically, we have always been looking for a balance between the richness and perfume of the Roussanne and Viognier and the fruit and freshness of the Chenin and Verdelho.

The 2018 was the fourth consecutive year of serious drought in the Cape Winelands. Yet, we didn’t have any drastic heat spikes during the harvest period and the vines showed little stress despite the severe dry conditions. The overall fruit quality was excellent, with very small berries producing great concentration of flavours. This vintage continues as previously with Chenin being dominant in the blend. Almost entirely barrel fermented, but with a touch of an “egg” fermented component adding body. We handled it as carefully and as naturally as possible, giving the wine only a light fining and bottling with minimal filtration. This is our seventh vintage of this wine and it is interesting to see the consistency of the vineyard.
