I almost think it's enough to quietly inform you that 2015 was an extremely good vintage for white wine in the Cape. So much so, that we're keeping quite a bit more than usual for ourselves. This bottling is intensely flavoured; ripe pear, honey and limey citrus come to mind. There are herbal/floral notes too - spearmint and lime leaf. As with all of our 2015's, the natural acid is a treat.

Chris Alheit told me that at present, the 2015 Cartology Bush Vines comes from nine vineyards. It offers complex and quite arresting aromas of walnut, wax resin, linseed and smoke that blossom in the glass, always as much an intellectual proposition as a sensory one. The palate is well balanced with superb balanced, very saline in the mouth, evoking images of the sea, fanning out with citrus fruit mixed with hazelnut and Chinese five spice. This is yet another killer wine in the Cartology series since 2011.

Gorgeous, with rich lemon curd, shortbread and white peach notes contrasted with racy quinine, verbena and white ginger flavors. The long finish ripples with minerality and clementine zest. Shows terrific range and length. Chenin Blanc and Sémillon. Drink now through 2025. 1,813 cases made.
