Old Vine Chenin Blanc

R390.00

Varietal: Chenin Blanc
Current Vintage: 2019
Tasting Notes

Baked apple, cinnamon, and ripe stone fruits on the nose. Quince, peach, and thatch follow on to the palate, great texture, mineral, pithy, and fresh. Long and lingering aftertaste with a creamy finish.

Made from a single Chenin Blanc vineyard planted in 1978 on the lower slopes of the Simonsberg. Old bush vines that have stood
the test of time, produce a small harvest of concentrated fruit. Grapes are picked by hand early morning and whole bunch pressed.
The juice is allowed to clarify naturally, and fermentation took place in 400L French oak barrels. 25% second fill and the balance neutral oak barrels. After fermentation the barrels rolled once a month for nine months before
blending in January 2020 and bottling in February.
