Cape Jaffa Anna's Blend 2015
A curious blend of barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Gewurtraminer. Although the percentages aren't stated, I don't particularly care - when blends like this come off, just rip in.
Turkish Delight, cinnamon, musk, tropical fruit, poached pear, honey, pineapple husk, even what seems to be a faint touch of white pepper in this buffet of aromas.
Crisp but the texture from the barrel fermented portion fills out the palate a little. A lick of fruit sweetness and spices from the Gewurz go to work riding this all the way home.
Refreshingly different and so very smashable.
Drink now watching the sunset.
