Attractive fresh-cut apple, lemon blossoms, supported by deeper oak perfume, quince paste and macadamia nut complexity. The palate is zesty with lemon and lime over almond paste texture, lightly toasted nuts, and a lingering ripe yellow stone fruit concentration. There is a lovely balance between the citric line of acidity and richer fruit weight. Full of flavour, yet elegant and nicely reigned in. As the wine opens up aromas of fynbos and will fennel persist on a very long and refined finish. Complex, layered and delicious right now, drink 2021 – 2025.
Christian Eedes from Winemag.co.za scored this 97/100 and had this to say:
‘What a thing of beauty the white blend called Disdit from Bot River property Anysbos as made by Marelise Niemann is turning out to be. The 2020 is a blend of 77% Chenin Blanc, 14% Roussanne, 7% Grenache Blanc and 2% Marsanne. Utterly enticing aromatics of flowers, herbs, lime, lemon, pear, peach plus the smallest hint of leesy reduction precede a palate of complexity, focus and drive – pure fruit and electric acidity, the finish extremely long and savoury. Thrilling to drink.’
