BlendPercent 43% Grenache Blanc, 37% Chenin Blanc, 20% Viognier
Cellar 2017 was a dry vintage. We are usually able to buy Roussanne and Viognier grapes, but not in 2016. We vinified the Chenin and Viognier. The Grenache Blanc is surplus to requirement for a highly regarded wine, and we were thrilled to be able to buy this wine. The grapes were hand-picked into small baskets and whole bunch pressed. Both Chenin and Viognier were barrel fermented with wild yeast in 500 litre, new, second fill and older barrels, and left on lees for 9 months. Grenache Blanc and Roussanne were also barrel fermented in older barrels.
Variety Grenache blanc
Vineyard Created from Grenache Blanc produced by the Foundry in Stellenbosch blended with old vine Chenin Blanc grapes grown on two sites in the Agter Paarl and Viognier from Kasteelsig Vineyard, both of which were vinified by our wine maker Jeremy Borg, who then put together this blend.
