Chenin Blanc is one of South Africa's success stories and this one satisfies with flavours of green apples and guava.
Serve this Chenin with a smoked salmon salad or maybe a snoek paté.
The grapes are sourced from the Stellenbosch region, mainly from bushvines on hillside slopes. It's a Mediterranean climate with weathered granite soil type, yielding very concentrated and complex tropical flavours. The vineyard blocks are selected prior to the harvest season and fruit is harvested at optimum ripeness (22 - 24ºB) with minimum skin contact and two days of settling of juice prior to fermentation. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tank at temperatures of 13 - 15ºC. After primary fermentation, wine is kept on its primary fermentation lees for two months which will add to the boldness and complexity of the palate. No wood treatment.
Succulent aromas of guava, fresh green apples and limes delivers a balanced Chenin Blanc, which is further enhanced by the fruity, crisp and zingy palate.
Ready to enjoy now or within the next two years.
