Limited Edition Chenin Blanc

Vineyards

Annelie Viljoen (Viticulturist)
The grapes were sourced from trellised vineyards in the Darling region. The dryland, unirrigated vineyards grow on northern-facing slopes in deep rich soils and produced a yield of around 8 tons per hectare.

Winemaking

Deon Boshoff (Cellar Master) / Elize Coetzee (Winemaker)
The grapes were harvested by hand at 24° Balling at the end of February. The fruit received no skin contact in the cellar and was fermented in stainless steel tanks at 13° to 15°C. After fermentation the wine was left on the fine lees for three months to enhance texture and flavour. This wine received no wood treatment.

Winemaker's Comments

Colour: Clear and brilliant with hints of green.
Bouquet: An abundance of tropical fruit and green apple aromas.
