Elgin's cool daytime climate and cold nights during the growing season make it perfectly suited to producing a Cape version of the famous German 'Mosel' style of Riesling. Exudes sweet yet persistent fresh limes, crisp apple, beeswax and wild honey. The fresh acidity is well balanced with the fruit sweetness and supported by mineral texture from the shale soils and a long, intense, sherbet finish. Secondary characteristics underlying limes and flowers include a tinge of lamp oil which enhances the overall texture and typical character of the wine.
