The Hunter is handpicked from selected Chenin Blanc which grows on the cool Western facing mountain slopes in the Retreat valley – west of Robertson. Only first-run juice was used and slowly fermented to produce a base wine with nuances of green apple, citrus and green pea undertones.
Our base wine was slowly distilled in the silence of the long cold winter nights and then matured in the finest barrels for six long years. This has nurtured the finest tastes of pear, peach, figs and citrus peel with hints of Cape Flora which one can identify on the farm.
The Hunter is available in very limited quantities. Order asap to avoid disappointment.
