Miles Mossop Saskia 2019

This is a Cape White blend comprised of 68% Chenin blanc, 15% Viognier, 9% Verdehlo and 8% Clairette blanche.

All the grapes for this wine are sourced from vineyards growing on the northern side of the Paardeberg mountain in the Swartland. Each vineyard is carefully selected to contribute its own unique characteristics to the final blend. Each parcel being picked at a specific ripeness to express either ripe fruit, fresh acidity, texture or perfume depending on the variety and the site.

The grapes are picked into small crates and put into a cold store overnight. The following morning the grapes are gently whole bunch pressed and the juice is settled overnight after which it is then run to 400 litre French oak barrels and a concrete egg for fermentation. The fermentation is allowed to start naturally and once completed the wine is topped and matured sur-lie for 10 months with regular lees stirring in French Oak, 12% being new and 22% of the blend having fermented and matured in concrete Egg.
