Alheit Vineyards Cartology

$44.92

In the words of the winery – “Cartology means the study of maps or charts. It could not be more perfect name for this wine. Not only because of our endeavours to search for and find these special old vineyards, but also because the wine itself can be seen as a vinous map or tapestry of the Cape… Cartology is a vinous exploration of Cape heritage.  It’s intended to be a picture of the Cape seen through the lens of her old vineyards in a given vintage. The cuveé is composed of rare and extraordinary parcels of mature dryland bushvines, of heritage grapes, namely Chenin Blanc and Sémillon. These grapes have been planted in the Cape for centuries. Cartology has become our staple offering.  It serves as a poster child for our project, and also seems to have become a flag bearer for Cape heritage wine in general… Weight and power are not the same thing.  Here’s a wine with a moderate palate weight that has both intensity and power.  The nose is wonderful: kumquat citrus, sweet oatmeal and honey, maybe elderflower. The palate is fine and bright, reminiscent of salty/sweet candied lemon, great length.”
