Grapes that are sourced from select vineyard sites in Stellenbosch, Paarl and Swartland go to make up this wine. This wine is characterized by soils of Table Mountain sandstone, decomposed Dolomite granite and shale.
Approximately 90% of the vines are low-yielding dry farmed bush vines, with an average age of 20+ years.The grapes were handpicked in the cool early morning hours, de-stemmed and lightly crushed, then left in contact with the skins for two hours. The free run juice was settled overnight, then cold fermented in stainless steel. The wine was aged on its lees in tank for two months. A small portion (4%) was fermented in 300 liter French oak barrels, and was aged on the lees for six months for enhanced richness and texture on the palate.
This fresh, vibrant version of Chenin Blanc offers succulent flavors of tropical fruit, melon and pear, backed by bright citrus flavors and a touch of honey. Lively peppery notes and an underlying mineral character shine through on the finish.
