Viticulture

The Chenin Blanc grapes were harvested from individually-selected, low-yielding bush and trellised wines from the Perdeberg region nearby Paarl. The grapes were hand-harvested in the cool of early morning. On the sorting table, all excess stalks and inferior berries were carefully removed.

Viniculture

After the grapes had been sorted, the grapes were destemmed and lightly crushed. The wine was settled overnight and the sediment was racked off the next day. Post fermentation lees contact was maintained for two months with weekly stirring of the lees before racking and stabilisation prior to bottling. This wine is crafted in a fresh style without any oak component.

Tasting Notes

There is an abundance of tropical fruit. Some honeysuckle blossoms, yellow stone fruit, peach and passionfruit. The bouquet is summery, with added fresh cut apple and some fynbos notes. The palate that follows is juicy with ripe melon, white peach, and fresh, bright acidity. Jam packed with fruit flavours and a citrus edge to the medium bodied lusciousness on the palate. The finish is persistent, rich fruited with an attractive youthful vibrancy.
