Ageing This wine will develop in bottle over the coming 3-4 years, gaining complexity as it develops in bottle.
BlendPercent 100% Chenin Blanc
Cellar The fruit was harvested at 23 to 24 balling, whole bunch pressed and settled before being fermented in barrel with natural wild yeast. The barrels used are large new, 2nd fill and older French oak barrels. Fermentation was very slow.
FoodSuggest The use of wild yeast and barrel fermentation for this wine has yielded a Chenin that is both sleek and complex, suitable for country cooking with a French flair.
Variety Chenin Blanc
Vineyard These Chenin Blanc grapes were harvested from two blocks of 30 plus-year-old vines in Agter Paarl. The vines are growing in composite soils of granite and decomposed shale.
