Talking about perfect strangers. The thoroughly balanced acidity is what creates a perfect ratio of ripe yellow fruit and floral notes with a hint of vanilla. With its long finish and subtle minerality, this creamy white is like a feel good movie that you know you'll be recommending after only seeing the intro. Grote Hamersma rating 8.5.

How it was made

Our macabeo is an impressive grape that arrived at our winery on 12 September, where the grapes were fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks. While we could have made it a monocepage, that does not fit the profile of our Sons line. Instead, we combined the grapes with our wood-aged chardonnay, which is also used for our beloved the Fat Lady Sings. The juice was aged in oak cask for only 3-4 months, comparable to our The Fat Lady sings, which will be released in September. Malolactic fermentation was quite late due to the cold days in our winery, allowing us to bottle this late Son in May. Apart from a small addition of sulphites – which we use to prevent the growth of unwanted micro-organisms – and our organic wine yeast, this wine contains no other additives, just grape juice in other words. We used a cellulose filter to filter the wine.
