The Yellowwood Organic White 2019
Wine that’s great tasting — and great for the earth. Made with grapes farmed without pesticides or artificial fertiliser, this organic blend of 54% Chenin Blanc and 46% Viognier is deliciously crisp with flavours of citrus and subtle spice. We love it with spicy noodles or Thai-style curries.
Aromas of white peach, pear and litchi with subtle notes of spice and citrus fruit are complemented by a crisp lingering finish.

VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS
Organically grown grapes from Stellenbosch and Paarl. The differences in altitude, aspect, solar radiation and wind exposure result in significant mesoclimate differences. This, coupled with variations in soil, created this complex wine with its unique character and style.
This blend of 54% Chenin blanc and 46% Viognier grapes were hand harvested in the morning in 8kg lug boxes. The grapes were cooled at the cellar before hand-sorting. A low-intervention approach was used throughout the winemaking process. The juice was fermented in a combination of stainless-steel tanks and French oak barrels, with 100% of the Viognier component in French oak barrels. The wine spent 4 months on its gross lees to enhance its structure before bottling.
