Blend: 50% Roussanne and 50% Verdelho.

Tasting notes:
'50% Roussanne, 50% Verdelho sourced from the Voor Paardeberg and matured in foudre for 14 months. Intriguing aromatics of orange, stone fruit, earth, dried herbs and spice plus some yeasty complexity and a little nuttiness. The palate has particular presence being quite thick textured but equally possessing nervy acidity. It’s a carefully conceived wine, not exactly easy to drink as it’s quite forceful but very characterful.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 93/100

'Unique in the Cape, and quite possibly elsewhere, this equal blend of Verdelho and Roussanne is a new release from Hagen Viljoen. There’s quite a bit of oak on the wine, but the focused, stony, beeswaxy flavours that lie beneath are deliciously zesty and complex. Drink: 2016-19.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2016, 93/100

'Voor Paardeberg fruit, 14 months oak, 2015 something different; green fruits & pear, slight stonefruit, brushed with oak’s biscuit flavours. Everything deliciously in sync.' – Platter's Guide, 4*
