Vineyards and vines:
A single-vineyard wine from a bush vine parcel planted in 1981. The vineyard is situated a mere 4.5 km’s from the shores of False Bay.
100% Chenin blanc.
This Chenin Blanc has been fermented and aged as naturally as possible, without intervention and in search of an authentic reflection of its origin. The grapes were handpicked in the early morning hours to preserve fruit integrity. The fruit was then gently pressed after a brief period of skin contact. The juice was settled overnight without the use of settling enzymes and from here it was fed directly to French oak barrels (all seasoned oak) where fermentaion occured spontaneously.
The wine was aged on its lees in barrel for 8 months, with no batonage. The wine was bottled after a coarse filtration in November 2017.
