Thanks to summer, the De Grendel vineyards are in full leaf and have a most magnificent green hue to them. We’re getting beautiful sunny, warm days with the odd shower hitting the ground and giving off the very distinctive flinty smell.
These two elements are found in our Koetshuis 2015, with generous aromas of green fruits like kiwi and Granny Smith apple interplaying with gooseberries and lemongrass in perfect harmony. On the palate we have a clean and flinty taste that has wonderful zippy acidity, soundly balanced by complexity gained from lees contact and good length. With the heat increasing, we’re also relishing seafood right now, and this wine is the perfect seafood partner.
This Smoked Salmon Dish is a perfect way to kickstart summer!
