Concept: Radio Lazarus is a single origin wine made from two extreme hilltop vineyards in the Bottlerary, Stellenbosch. As with Magnetic North, the idea is to express a place.
RADIO LAZARUS 2015
Composition: 100% high land dry land bushvine Chenin Blanc. 2015 represents a big first, in that Radio Lazarus is now made from two special parcels, instead of one. One parcel grows on Ribbokkop (1978), one parcel on Bottelaryberg(1970). Origin Botteralry. Please see the Vineyards section for more information.
Notes: At this early stage of the wine’s life, the nose is showing lovely aromatics of apple, citrus zest, fennel and its typical chalky/dusty note. The palate is full of energy. Sweet fruit elements swim upstream in vain against a rip current of stony salinity. Tannic and textural elements amplify the great natural acidity, creating a very refreshing, palate cleansing drink.
