Light straw yellow in colour. The bouquet is fragrant, delicious gooseberry and citrus fruit, smoky, mineral, flint, passion fruit, with a hung grassiness. The palate is bold with hints of freshly cut grass, lovely minerally and fresh in a bottle, lime, lots of length and complexity on the finish.

Set in the heart of the mountain-ringed Robertson Valley in South Africa's Western Cape Province, Springfield Estate is a vibrant, family-run wine farm. It is owned by the Bruwer family, fourth-generation wine farmers and ninth-generation descendants of the Bruères, French Huguenots who came to South Africa from the Loire in 1688 with bundles of vines under their arms. The present owners of Springfield, brother-and-sister team Abrie and Jeanette Bruwer, are just as dynamic and enthusiastic as their ancestors and are prepared to take risks to do what they love best – making wine. The real magic of Springfield lies in the bottles of hand-crafted wine it produces, true gems of tradition, which offer both quality and individuality in keeping with the estate's motto: from the grape to the bottle with care and passion.
