Welmoed Chenin Blanc 2018
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.
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.
Excellent served with a light smoked salmon and cream cheese salad or snoek paté.
