BC Field Lot
Rich fig jam & luxurious honey balanced by delicate lemon acidity.
You may recognise Veer Attikan Estate, but did you know it’s divided into over 30 distinct ‘fields’ which are kept separate throughout the entire process, all the way to the final cupping and selection? While slurping through this year’s harvest, we separated our favourite lots to highlight the distinct varietal and terroir differences from across the estate. This lot, BC (Big Clearing), is from one of the highest elevated fields mostly growing SL-795. Finished with honey processing has brought out flavours of rich fig jam & luxurious honey, balanced by delicate lemon acidity.

More about "Big Clearing" Field
Big Clearing (BC) is one of the east facing slopes bordering the naturally-forested wind breaks which are scattered around the farm. This makes it a prime habitat for many of the wild elephants, Indian gaur (bison) and spotted deer which roam wild, as the dense forest provides perfect camouflage for them all. The field is predominantly made up of the SL 795 variety well known for rust resistance, high yields and a base from which high quality and desirable cupping profiles can be obtained.
