On entry it exudes dried apricot and peach with tropical notes, persisting onto the palate together with ripe white fleshy pear. Balancing the succulent fruit is good acidity, and a creamy finish rounds off the luxurious taste experience. Concentrated yet fresh, with mouth-filling white pear, quince and gooseberry, followed by aromatic almond blossom and a balanced, lingering finish. Its depth of flavour is one of the Anemos’ stand-out features, along with a bright, focused acidity and earthy minerality which should see it age well. The Old Road Wine Co tells the story of special old vines grown in rugged corners of the Franschhoek wine country. Named after the Greek mythical origin of wind, which reveals something of the wild and spiritual nature of this single-vineyard wine's birthplace.
