This wine gets its name from the large boulder which punctuates the dramatic vineyard block, situated at an elevation of approximately 300m. This bush-vine vineyard is planted along dramatic terraces which, along with the large boulder recall a traditional Japanese garden, hence the name, Monk Stone. This wine is vegan-friendly
– Serve chilled
– Pairs well with fragrant curry dishes and seafood.
Bouquet of guava and quince with a note of Crème Brûlée. On the palate, there is a depth of fruit and a contrasting, light mouthfeel.
From a single bush-vine vineyard on our own Jonkershoek farm.
This vineyard is planted along a very steep slope which allows even ripening and longer sunlight hours. The resultant wine has well-developed, ripe fruit flavours and a refreshing acidity.
