About

Product Description:

Chenin Blanc is unquestionably the premier grape of South Africa. 2018 was a tough year for growers with yields down a fair bit though the quality was very high. This wine hails from two sites in the Swartland, gnarly, bush vines on gentle sloping granitic, sandy soils. These soils serve as the lifeforce for the wine and are predominantly between 20-30-years-old. A cool, controlled fermentation occurred in stainless steel and was left on its gross lees for six months. Malolactic fermentation was blocked to maintain freshness and acidity. Intense aromatics, powerful flavors and bright acidity are the hallmarks of this wine.
