Only the best quality free-run juice was used in the production of this Chenin Blanc. Part of the wine, between 20 – 30%, was fermented and aged in French oak barrels and the rest fermented in stainless steel tanks. This unique blend of Barrel Matured Chenin Blanc and fresh, crisp wine fermented in stainless steel tanks, is one of a kind produced in our Cellar.

The Grapes

Chenin Blanc 2019 berries were in general smaller, but they were concentrated in flavour and healthy. This was due to the moderate temperature during growth and ripening time. It was a larger crop than 2018. Our vineyards are grown using a philosophy of minimal intervention and fertilised with natural compost produced on the farm. The
Chenin Blanc grapes were selectively hand-harvested in the cool, early morning hours to optimise quality.
