Tasting Note:

Single vineyard from Paarl planted in the early 1960s, 2 hectares in size. Used to be two picks, first one at the bottom of the slope for freshness and the top part about 2 weeks later as the soil is poorer and the rocky influence gives immense concentration, however the drought only allowed for one harvest in 2017 and total production was a mere 1.2k bottles. The Chenins are whole bunch pressed, settle overnight in stainless steel and are then racked in to barrel for fermentation. Lukas keeps the whites on the primary lees for 6-8 months before bottling. The 2017 Kamaraderie has an almost Burgundian feel to the wine with broad Meursault like concentration and complexity with pithy dry white peaches, fresh herbs, pistachio lemon balm and yellow plum.
