Welmoed Chenin Blanc 2018

The vineyards

The grapes were sourced from premium bushvines on hillside slopes in the Stellenbosch region. The vines were selected due to the fact that they yielded very concentrated and complex tropical flavours.

The winemaking

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.
