This wine displays notes of pears, apricots, white flowers and stewed quince fruit. The well-integrated French oak gives the wine a layer of creaminess yet strikes a balance between lush fruit and crisp, mouth-watering acidity.

Here’s our detailed product profile.

Complexities within our wines.

Wine Making

The grapes were hand harvested in picking baskets and production was around 1-2 tons per hectare. Crushing and de-stemming took place after which the mash went to the separation tank and the juice was cooled down to 8oC and transferred to settling tanks.

The juice was then racked to stainless steel tanks, innoculated with cultured yeast and with the onset of fermentation it was transferred to barrel, where it completed fermentation between 14-21 days.

The blend underwent partial malolactic fermentation after which the wine spent 9 months in 228 litre french oak barrels. Each block was harvested at least three times at different levels of ripeness, and each picking was divided into four batches, innoculated with different yeast strains, all to achieve different characters which, when blended together, attained maximum complexity to the wine.

Location

Our famous Chenin Blanc vineyard varies between 48 and 50 years of age. The vines are planted on W-NW facing slopes at 280-300m and N.NW and at 180- 205m above sea level. The soil varies from medium to heavy textured, with a moderate structure and shale mother material.
