VINIFICATION:

Our Chenin Blanc is harvested from vineyards in the Stellenbosch and Franschhoek area. The Franschhoek vineyard is 38 years old. The grapes were picked early morning during February at optimal ripeness to ensure that the varietal characteristics are best captured. The grapes are brought into the cellar where they are whole bunch pressed to further ensure that the varietal fruit characteristics are preserved. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain freshness and a fruity expression. The wine 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 pome fruit, balanced with a fresh acidity and textural finish.

 

SERVING SUGGESTION

Enjoy this wine with meaty salads and simply prepared pork or chicken dishes. Also a great partner to grilled pear with a honey glaze sauce.
