Description

Named Hundertgulden – a hundred guilders – because in medieval times its wine was so valuable. Pure limestone and chalky loam soils give an intense, lean lemony wine with juicy grapefruit and very fine salty mineral flavours that linger on the finish.Red soils give a herbal, crisp lemony wine with a hint of the ferrous. There is considerable density, a very fine delicate minerality and a long smooth finish.
