The Vineyard Party new releases

By , 5 September 2023

In 2020, Jolette Steyn of the The Vineyard Party sourced Semillon from Constantia Uitsig and she speaks positively of the vintage, a cool growing season resulting in perfect ripening conditions. As with her maiden 2018 releases, two wine from the same fruit but featuring different vinification – tasting notes and ratings as follows:

Daisy If You Do 2020
Price: R265
Whole-bunch pressed, maturation lasting 10 months in older oak. Peach, citrus, hay, fynbos plus hints of bee’s wax and earth. The palate has a dense core of fruit and is lightly creamy in texture, bright acidity lending refreshment value – well balanced and full of flavour, the finish having a saline quality to it. A wine of precision. Alc: 13.3%.

CE’s rating: 94/100.

I’m Your Huckleberry 2020
Price: R265
100% skin contact for 15 days, maturation lasting 10 months in older oak. Top notes of floral perfume, hay, ginger and other spice precede citrus, stone fruit and some waxiness.  Concentrated fruit, snappy acidity, the finish slightly grippy and deeply savoury. Lots going on and completely delicious.

CE’s rating: 94/100.
