Cape Jaffa 'Samphire' Skin Contact White 2015

A blend of Chardonnay, Gewurtztraminer, Viognier that spent six months on skins with a further six months in barrel. It's a textural monster, full, lavish. Dry, chalky tannin, a little bitterness on the back palate, white pepper. 

It's not the strongest aromatically: there's a suggestion of stonefruit in the mix, particularly some dried apricot. A light squeeze of lemon. 

Hard to rate. 89 

Tasted on: Tuesday 16th August
Source: Sample
Price: $29
Alcohol: 14.5%
