This 100% Chenin Blanc is from low yielding, 32 - 41 year old bush vines on rolling hills in Paarl and Stellenbosch, exposed to south eastern winds, rain and lots of sunshine. The grapes were left to ripen fully to ensure the development of the rich and ripe flavours and complexity. The grapes were destalked, then mash cooled with 4 -8 hours skin contact and cool fermentation. A small percentage (7 %) of the Chenin Blanc was fermented in French Oak barrels to generate an added dimension of richness. The complex nose shows upfront tropical fruit, ripe pineapple, melon, peaches and honey flavours, lifted by a citrus element. Good company for al fresco lunches. Also great with grilled chicken or fish, rich pasta dishes and spicy food. Full and juicy palate with layers of ripe tropical fruit complemented by a long, clean, crisp and lingering aftertaste.
