Vineyards and vines:
Hand selected Chenin Blanc from Stellenbosch, primarily from low yielding, old bush vines growing in clovelly soil. Harvested at full maturity.
The pinnacle of what we consider to be the finest expression of the grapes of this varietal – an icon Chenin, a challenge to the world!
Vinification and Maturation:
Natural wild yeast fermentation in new French oak 400L barrels.
Due to repetitive harvesting some botrytis is always present. Maturation on the lees – total of 12 months in the barrel.
Rich, layered with dried apricot, vanilla and honey. Will gain additional complexity with cellaring. Enjoy with special friends as an exciting aperitif or with spiced dishes, even mild seafood/shellfish or curries. Great with exotic Eastern spiced foods.
