Tasting Note

Chenin Blanc thrives in the Mediterranean climate, deep soils and bush-vine vineyards of our region. We use only the free-run juice (no pressing of the grapes) to preserve its clean and natural character, refreshing acidity and delicious ripe fruit flavours. It's bursting with flavour, and is a mouth-watering Chenin Blanc with intense tropical fruit flavours offset by a vibrant acidity.

Product Information

Winemaking

Sourced from various vineyards in the Agter-Paarl region. Mostly un-irrigated, older (10-35 yr old), bush-vine (un-trellised) vineyards with low yields of 6,5 tons/ha. Only free-run juice used in producing this wine. After settling the must was inoculated and allowed to ferment over 20 days in stainless steel tanks at an average fermentation temperature of 13 degrees centigrade. The wine was left on its lees for 3 months until bottling for richer and fuller mouth-feel.


Food Recommendation

A versatile food wine to go with most poultry, fish and salad dishes. Also fabulous as an aperitif for a hot summer afternoon. Serve chilled

Press

  • South Africa is brilliant at chenin blanc – aka steen – from bush vines, making wines both rich and oaky and, in this case, clean, box-fresh and vibrantly, irrepressibly tropically fruity, always with a refreshing spine of luminous acidity.

  • The very thought of this makes my mouth water. Modern but with soul, made from bush-vine chenin, it tastes like hard white peaches with ripe pears and green mango, and converted a few Kiwi sauvignon fans when I opened it at home.
