Backsberg Family Reserve White 2018

A wonderful medley of coconut, peach and aniseed aromas combined with vanilla undertones on the palate and a creamy, long-lasting finish.

Rich cheeses, full-flavored and creamy food. Particularly compliments chicken and duck. This wine could make an ordinary toasted cheese sandwich look gourmet.

Soil Type: Simonsberg slopes of predominantly weathered granite and clay loam soils
Viticulture: Lyre system vines with sun-worshiping, open-arms ensure maximum ripeness

in the cellar : Grapes with intense flavour are selected in the vineyard and only small batches of each cultivar are used to produce this noteworthy wine. The various cultivars are pressed and fermented in isolation in new French oak for 5 months. The desired, best blend is then drawn and the wine bottled directly from barrel. Twelve of the best French oak barrels have been assembled to achieve this deeply concentrated white blend.
