The Companion White (Non-Vintage) is a barrel fermented white blend made up of components originally destined for the Keermont Terrasse. The biggest fraction of the blend was a 500 Litre barrel of 2020 Viognier which was a bit too powerful for the Terrasse blend and would have thrown it a bit off balance. To this we added one 225L barrel of Terrasse 2020 blend and one of the 2021 blend.

Tasting Notes

A polished light-yellow gold colour, this wine has a complex bouquet of prominent citrus and stone fruit with notes of vanilla, freshly green cut apple, Frangipane flowers, and a hint of cut grass and earthiness. The wine has a soft juicy palate. Subtle fruit flavours of peach, litchi and apricot are complimented by hints of sweet spice, vanilla, and a notable richness from the lees contact. There is good weight on the mid-palate and a light texture. A limey acidity holds the wine together into a lingering, succulent finish. Drink 2021-2030.
