Description

This Chenin Blanc is from a vineyard planted in 1978 in the Swartland. These trellised vineyards are planted on a south-east facing slope and are dry farmed. The 2015 season was one of the driest and earliest harvests in years. Conditions throughout the growing season and harvest were conducive for the production of high quality grapes. Crops were thinned out at the beginning of January in order to balance growth and tonnage. Despite one heat wave towards the end of January, the cool night-time temperatures caused the grapes to ripen slowly, which helped to maintain their natural acidity. Harvest took place two weeks earlier than usual.
Tasting Notes: This wine has a lovely, bright light-yellow colour. The nose is complex with tropical fruits and melon followed by flinty notes. The palate is rich and broad, reminiscent of the koffieklip soils, with well-balanced acidity from the first picking.
