The vines, planted in 2015, thrive in lime rich deep red Karoo soils.
The grapes are harvested at night at optimum ripeness of approximately 22.5 ºBalling (Brix). In the cellar, only the free-run juice is selected and allowed to cold-settle for three days. The clean juice is then racked and taken to second and third-fill 300-litre French oak barrels for fermentation. After fermentation, the wine is left on the primary fermentation lees for up to six months, stirred once a week during the first couple of months, and then left to mature and settle naturally for the remaining period. Finally, the wine is racked, fined, and stabilized before bottling.
This is a dry, but fruity Chenin Blanc with intense aromas of dried apple, fresh citrus and a touch of oak spice. The palate is rich and creamy with a firm but balanced acidity, complemented by a smooth, lingering aftertaste.
Pair with any seafood or poultry dishes. Great with grilled fish!! Serve chilled (7-10ºC).
