Rall White 2020

"Chenin Blanc 64%, Verdelho 32% and Viognier 4% all fermented naturally and matured separately in a combination of 225, 400 and 500 litre seasoned French oak and in this vintage around 20% of the Chenin also in concrete before blending and bottling after 10 months. With a bigger component of the blend from the old vine chenin grown on the granitic soils of the Paardeberg, this vintage retains the fine mineral backbone of the 2019 but with more texture, green and yellow citrus fruit, herbs and even some spice on the palate. Great natural acidity and a very low pH will also give this wine great aging potential of up to 10 years from vintage"- Winemaker's notes

Rall Red 2019

R320.00 inc. VAT
Syrah 65%; Grenache 13%; Cinsault 13% and Carignan 9%. Again the biggest percentage of varieties other than Syrah since the first vintage in 2008. By adding more of the GCC that can generally be harvested earlier than the Syrah this 2020 has more fruit and freshness compared to its predecessors while still being structured. Black and red fruit, herbs and pepper from nearly 100% whole-bunch fermentation on all components and a rich, savoury palate. Matured in old French oak for 10 months before being bottled unfined and very lightly filtered and a further 18 months bottle maturation before release.
