The Details

In a Nutshell

With Amatra White, a Chenin-based cuvée, Cathy aims to apply a classic, cool, restrained approach to a generally accepted warmer climate variety found in most of South Africa.

Tasting Notes

Bright, fresh, sweet melon and white peach top notes with fleshy ripe nectarines on the core and crisp green apple acidity on the finish. A rich mid-palate of lanolin adds depth and complexity to the wet granite stone texture. Primary white peach and fresh apple fruit aromatics may evolve into nutty, spicy baked apple and cardamom notes with age.

Production Notes

Both cluster and berry sorting commenced prior to being partially crushed. The mash was pressed in a pneumatic bag press where both free run and pressed fractions were treated oxidatively with minimal chemical additives. The juice was settled cold for two days and then 40% was decanted to old 225 litre French casks and the remaining 60% was fermented cold in stainless steel with no commercial yeast strain innoculated. The wine has not been through secondary malo lactic fermentation and matured for 8 months after which both components were consolidated.
