Alheit VineyardsNautical Dawn 2019
Availability: 2 in stock
“This is our best vintage of Nautical Dawn so far, further confirming just how good this part of Stellenbosch is. This parcel was planted in 1978 on the shallow granite soil of the upper slope of Sinai hill in Firgrove, right on the False Bay coast of Stellenbosch. The hillside is breezy, with spectacular views of the sea and Hangklip in the distance.
As always, the wine is an athlete. Clear yellow fruit and sweet herbs, endless flavour, unreal tension and energy on the palate.
