The Grande Provence White
An elegant blend of Chenin Blanc and Viognier, pressed and aged in French oak barrels for 24 months. The result is a full bodied rich wine with bold flavour and structure and intense flavours of peach, melon and quince.
WINE OF ORIGIN
RS 3.4 g/l
The Chenin Blanc grapes (56% ) were hand harvested from 32 year old vines. After gentle pressing, the juice is fermented in 500L French oak barrels for 1 year. The Viognier (44% ) is sourced from high lying vines on the slopes of the Franschhoek mountains. The grapes are whole bunch pressed and aged in new and older 500L French oak barrels for one year. The separately vinified varieties are blended meticulously to create a classic wine that is greater than the sum of its parts.
Rich, full-bodied and barrel fermented, this is a white blend that intrigues and offers immense pleasure now and will further reward cellaring for another 3-5 years.
