Rickety Bridge Noble Late Harvest is made from sweet Chenin grapes which spends 14 months ageing in small French oak barrels. A delicious match for cheese, this rich, ripe dessert wine has apricot and peach skin flavours. Ripe mango on the nose leads to a full, rich palate of white peach and tropical fruit notes that's sweet but never cloying.

This historic Franschhoek estate was formed out of one of the original farms that was granted to the Huguenots when they settled here, and it was first planted with vines in 1797 when it passed to Paulina De Villiers. The estate nestles against the slopes of the Franschhoek Mountains, close to the Franschhoek River that the old rickety bridge used to cross. The lower flatlands are covered by sandy soils while the hillsides are made up decomposed granite, ideal for red grapes. In 2000, British businessman Duncan Spence acquired the estate and there has been extensive investment to create a modern cellar, which is currently overseen by Mari Kotze.

Grapes are harvested by hand in the early hours from 40+ year old Chenin Blanc vineyards planted on alluvial soils along the Franschhoek River. Very low yieling vines produce these concentrated bunches. Fermentation lasts 27 days at 14°c. The wine is further aged for 14 months in small french oak barrels
