100% Chenin Blanc
Food Suggestions
This Chenin Blanc is a great accompaniment to dishes such as smoked chicken salad on a warm summer’s day or thinly sliced carpaccio served on a bed of rocket with a lemon olive oil and black pepper dressing.
In The Vineyard
Average cooler temperatures allowed slower ripening of the grapes. This in turn let to richer wines at lower alcohol levels with great fruit concentration.
About The Harvest
Grapes are harvested from decomposed granite soils and vineyards varying in age but non younger than 30 years and up to 42 years of age.
In The Cellar
It is allowed short skin contact and natural settling. 20% is fermented in 3rd and 4th fill French oak barrels and 80% in stainless steel after which both portions are kept 5 months on the fermentation lees before it is blended and fined. Fermentation is a slow natural process and only wild yeasts are used – it can take up to 3 months to finish fermentation.
