Tasting Notes:

Bright gold straw colour. Lovely forthcoming nose of passion fruit, peach pith, lemon, nutty honey and a little salty fennel character. Vibrant, zesty palate with a multitude of flavours dancing across the palate. Piercing citrus, passionfruit and peach skin mingling with dusty spice components. Lovely natural acidity carries the wine through to a long, elegant finish.

An isolated vineyard in the Malgas ward near the mouth of the Breede River – called Sijnn by the original Khoisan inhabitants. Perched on a plateau of slate and rolled stones, about 15km from the southern oceans of Africa. Our first harvest in our new winery in the vineyard, as well as the first harvest for our talented young on site winemaker, Charla Haasbroek. 2017 is a landmark year for our Sijnn White & our new label reflects this: The vineyards are now mature. Our tenth vintage of White and we’re starting to understand our terroir. The most exceptional vintage yet at Malgas.

An excellent growing season with no problems. We had ideal weather at the beginning of the ripening season with a little rain on occasions. The moderate weather with cool nights continued throughout the harvest period producing wines with excellent acidity. A modest crop of great quality.

Handpicked and sorted in the cool mornings. A portion whole bunch pressed and the balance 2 hrs cold soak before pressing in a traditional basket press. Barrel fermented in 400L and 700L French oak barrels, about 11% new for 10 months. Lightly fined with bentonite (natural clay) and bottled by hand unfiltered.

Food pairing

Ideal on its own or with fish and seafood.
