Smokkelman White is blended from a hand-picked selection of bespoke barrels secretly gesmokkel from some of the Cape’s most prestigious cellars. Consisting of Stellenbosch and Paarl Chenin Blanc with a touch of old vine Franschhoek Semillon. Completely destemmed, gently pressed into concrete kuipe, spontaneously fermented at cool temperatures, settled and racked into old oak barrels where it lay undisturbed on the fine lees for 7 months before being blended and bottled. Bottled at 13%. (Bottle size 750ml)
Nose: Aromas reminiscent of poaching orchard fruit on a warm summer’s afternoon.
Palate: A palate of juicy white fruit.
Finish: A slightly waxy herbal finish.
Smokkelman is a collaboration between Solitary Wines and Sonn & Co made on the Karibib wine farm in the Polkadraai Hill just outside Stellenbosch. The type of wine you will not find in every retail store.
