An abundance of tropical fruit and floral notes on the nose followed by hints of white pear and fruit salad on the palate. Soft, beautifully balanced mouth-feel. Harmoniously blended!

The White Mischief is a 6-cultivar white blend made from selected grapes from Vrede en Lust’s Elgin farm, Casey’s Ridge. It showcases the cooler climate aromas of the cultivar, with focus on how they complement one another.
The name ‘White Mischief’ is literally derived from the winemakers who were playing around with the white wines from Elgin and creating this very unique white blend! The components of this blend may vary slightly from vintage to vintage but the same mischievous style will however be maintained. The 2015 White Mischief was awarded doubled gold at the 2016 National Wine Challenge.
The grapes were hand-harvested Chenin Blanc and crushed during February and March. The juice settled and was fermented in stainless steel tanks. The wine was aged on the lees and blended before bottling.
