A blend of 50% Chenin Blanc, 20% Viognier, 12% Roussanne, 10% Sémillon and 8% Clairette Blanche, the 2016 Aristargos opens to a nose rich with mineral essence and aromas of wet river rocks, beeswax, dust-covered citrus blossoms, yellow cherry, peach skin and pineapple husk. Medium-bodied, the wine shows impeccable texture and weight across the mid-palate, unpacking a balanced structure with energetic acidity and beautiful finesse. The wine continues to evolve on the palate with hints of seared almonds and flavors of brioche crumbs on the long, lingering finish. Bravo!
"David & Nadia is a family owned Swartland driven project and we focus on a
spectrum of organic, old and dry land bush vine vineyards from different areas
with different soil types throughout the Swartland, farmed by like-minded people.
We are members of the Swartland Independent Producers.
In the vineyard we aim for biological farming and in the cellar we work as natural as possible. It is all about the soil and vineyards after all. We believe in a pure, fresh and natural style where site and soil are at work with minimal influence from a winemaking point of view." - Winery
