Along the lower foothills of the Groenlandberg mountain, Sir Antonie Vijoen, the founder of Oak Valley discovered a crystal clear fresh water spring. So good was this water that Sir Antonie had it piped over many miles to his home and proclaimed it the fountain of youth.

Grapes are harvested early morning and chilled to 7°C.

Bunches are hand sorted, de-stemmed and crushed. Selected parcels undergo a period of skin contact in tank to enhance flavour extraction, the remainder goes straight to press. Fermentation in tank occurs at 12-16°C until dry to retainbeautiful tropical fruit.

The wine is left on the gross lees for 12 weeks to broaden the mouth feel.

Food pairing

Serve chilled with salmon fillets and caper-berry salad.
