Tasting Notes:

Pure yellow gold in colour, the 2017 Fleurfontein exudes aromas of kiwifruit, dried apricot, and citrus with hints of Hazelnut and Vanilla. The palate is full and creamy with concentrated flavours of dried fruits and marzipan. A central core of acidity gives the wine a long, complex, and focused succulent finish with a slightly salty touch.

The Keermont Fleurfontein (‘flower fountain’) derives its name from a beautiful spring on the farm near the Sauvignon Blanc vineyard from which the grapes are sourced.

Raisins are produced by pinching the stem of the grape bunches while they ripen on the vine. This stops the translocation of fluids into and out of the grapes and allows them to dry naturally during the warm summer. The raisins are harvested a few weeks later and the syrupy juice is squeezed from them with a hard pressing process.

The syrup is fermented by indigenous yeast in Hungarian and French oak barrels.

Matured for 18 months inin Hungarian and French oak barrels.

Food pairing

Serve with mascarpone, pear & fig tart or cheese platter for dessert.
