A combination of both bushvines and trellised vineyards, the majority of the grapes
coming from the Agter Paarl and Swartland regions. The aim in the vineyards to
achieve a balance that will ensure a balanced glass of wine in your hand.
Cellar & Blending Notes:
Natural fermentation on around 70% of the juice used to produce this wine.
Fermentation lasted around 3-6 weeks adding more complexity to the wine.
A good example of why Chenin has for a long time been the workhorse and favourite
in South Africa but is now starting to be recognised all over for its versatility and
brillianly defined fruit flavours.
Balancing white cereal and stone fruit with yellow citrus and hints of lifted spice.
Aging & Drinking Suggestions:
A wine that can will show the many sides of Chenin during the first year or two in the
bottle, but ready to be enjoyed at this very moment. In South Africa a firm favourite with fish and seafood on the braai(BBQ/grill) and also a fine partner for basic, fresh produce pastas.
