BlendPercent 49% Grenache Blanc, 43% Chenin Blanc, 8% Roussanne
Cellar 2016 was a very difficult drought vintage. We are usually able to buy Roussanne and Viognier grapes, but not in 2016. We vinified the Chenin. However, the Grenache Blanc and Roussanne were surplus to requirement for a well-known and highly regarded wine maker, and we were thrilled to be able to buy this wine. The grapes were hand-picked into small baskets and whole bunch pressed. The chenin was barrel fermented with wild yeast in 500 litres barrels mostly 2 and 3rdfill and left with low sulphur for 9 months. Grenache Blanc and Roussanne were also barrel fermented in older barrels.
FoodSuggest A rich textured wine which will pair well with Sunday roast pork with all of the trimmings, fish like kingklip, halibut or turbot, prawn risotto or even a rich festive biriyani.
Variety Grenache
Vineyard Produced from old vine Chenin Blanc grapes grown at Leeuwenkuil vineyard in the Agter Paarl. Grenache Blanc is grown by Willie Mostertin the Voor-Perdeberg and Roussanne from Firgrove in Stellenbosch.
