VINIFICATION

Crafted in a vibrant, fruit driven style, Grande Provence Chenin Blanc captures the classic characteristics and purity of Chenin Blanc resulting in a complex yet accessible wine.

Our Chenin Blanc is harvested from vineyards in the Stellenbosch and Franschhoek area. The Franschhoek vineyard is 38 years old. The grapes are picked early morning at optimal ripeness to capture the varietal characteristics. The grapes are brought into the cellar where they are whole bunch pressed to further preserve the varietal fruit character. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain freshness and a fruity expression. It was aged on the lees for 8 months.

 

STYLE

This unwooded, crisp white wine shows passionfruit, guava and apricot on the nose. The palate displays concentrated layers of white peach, apple and pear, balanced with a fresh acidity and textural finish.

 

SERVING SUGGESTION

Enjoy this wine with hearty salads and simply prepared pork or chicken dishes. it is also a great partner to grilled pear with a honey glaze sauce.
