Wine Style: Rich White
Closure: Cork / Cork Type
Producer: Miles Mossop
Miles Mossop Wines burst onto the scene in 2004 when the first wines were made: the Max 2004, a red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot and Petit Verdot, and the Saskia 2004, a white blend of Chenin blanc and Viognier. Later in 2010 the first vintage of the Kika 2009, a Noble Late harvest made from Chenin blanc was introduced.
It is a family business with Miles Mossop (winemaker at Tokara winery) as winemaker and viticulturist.
The wines are named after Miles and Samantha Mossop's three children, Saskia-Jo, Maximilian Anthony and Kika Bella. Production is limited to 15 tons in total which results in 500 cases of the white and 500 cases of the red being produced.
These are truly handcrafted wines showing pure fruit expression and with an emphasis on finesse, texture and length.
Grapes: 71% Chenin Blanc, 24% Viognier & 5% Clairette Blanche.
Initially the nose displays aromas of honeysuckle, marzipan and fresh brioche. These are then overpowered by the intense notes of stone fruit, white peaches, honeydew melon and lightly roasted almonds.
Entry onto the palate is marked by notes of dried apricots, white peaches and fresh limes. The mid palate is rich, full and creamy with flavours of toasted almonds and freshly baked bread. The finish lingers with a freshness and hint of white pepper spice.
Drink now or cellar until 2015 for optimal drinking.
A perfect accompaniment to Lobster Bisque, Seafood Paella, Sushi or a mildly spicy dish.
