Intelligent and playful, the Cape Grey Mongoose is charming to watch, feeding off insects and burrowing in the vineyards. This wine honours the small, bushy-tailed Mongoose – both big on attitude and surprisingly dynamic. Grapes are sourced from mature sites in Perdeberg, Rawsonville and Worcester. Harvested at full ripeness at the different sites, cold settled and fermented (14-16°C) with specially selected yeast strains that accentuate modern, bright Chenin Blanc fruit. This ensured wonderful components to create this ripe, tropical wine with a hint of wheatiness.
A well balanced and fruity wine, with a lingering finish.
