Juicy and complex aromas of apple, plum and citrus fruits. Creamy on the palate with a crisp acidity and a saline and mineral finish.
This is the ninth vintage of Cartology. Rarely does a new producer attain cult status with immediate effect like Alheit. Cartology is their flagship wine; a vinous exploration of Cape heritage. It’s intended to be a picture of the Cape seen through the lens of her old vineyards in a given vintage. The cuveé is composed of rare and extraordinary parcels of mature dryland bushvines, of heritage grapes, namely Chenin Blanc and Sémillon. These grapes have been planted in the Cape for centuries.
Cartology means the study of maps or charts. It could not be a more perfect name for this wine. Not only because of our endeavours to search for and find these special old vineyards, but also because the wine itself can be seen as a vinous map or tapestry of the Cape.
