2018 Cartology Bush Vines, Chris Alheit, Western Cape

Super nose, really saline and mineral. Amazing texture. So fine and silky, and such length. This is pure, silky and so fine.

TASTING NOTES

Is this the best vintage of Cartology since the maiden 2011 release? I reckon so. Made from a blend of Chenin Blanc and 10% Semillon, spanning the Western Cape from Citrusdal Mountain to Faure, it's weighty yet ethereal, with lots of leesy intensity, subtle oak and pear and citrus fruit.
