The Vioneers Orpheus and Raven N7 Kaapse Rebel 2020
As expected, the personality of the site from where the grapes are sourced contributes to the complexity of the wine. Shaly soils add minerality and perfume to the wine, with a natural elegance of structure. The overriding impression is youthfulness and vibrancy, which bodes well for the aging potential of the wine. The 50% new oak is well-integrated owing to the extended maturation period. The entry on the palate is round and elegant, with a good tannin structure to support the abundance of fruit on the palate. Our hope is that our No.7 will showcase the complexity and richness inherent to our proudly South African grape variety.
