The grapes were harvested selectively, in the early morning, by hand at a balling of between 24°and 25°
IN THE CELLAR
Only the best of the free-run juice was used and fermented with wild yeast. After fermentation, the wine was left on its fine lees for 5 months and bâtonnage regularly before bottling.
ADS Chenin Blanc is light straw in colour, the Chenin blanc is full-bodied yet elegant. The wine is very viscous, giving it a wonderful mouthfeel and texture. The acid is well integrated and balanced resulting in a palate that shows great length and fullness for an unwooded wine. Primary fruit flavours of passion fruit and ripe guavas dominate the nose and palate. The resulting wine shows a rare combination of intense aromas, complexity and length which is an excellent example of South Africa Chenin blanc. Compliments fish, salads and white meat dishes.
