Miles Mossop Introduction Roussanne 2020 75cl


Tasting Note


Until May 2018, Miles Mossop’s day job was as winemaker at Tokara, a position he had held since the winery started-up in 2000. The agreement Miles had with GT Ferreira, the owner of Tokara, allowed him to vinify 10 tonnes of bought in grapes and put them under his own label each year. Now completely independent and now making wines in two different locations in Stellenbosch, Miles is starting to extend both production and the range he produces.

Miles Mossop Wines started out as a three-wine project, each being named after one of his children. This range then developed into a four-wine collection, the fourth being named after his wife, Samantha. 

As part of the new expansion plans, Miles has introduced three more wines under ‘The Introduction’ label.

The second white in the range is Roussanne, sourced from Keemont on the Helderberg. The wine is whole bunch pressed, enjoys a natural-yeast fermentation in old oak where it remains for eight months.
