Vineyard info/Viticulture
Chenin Blanc is harvested from a number of blocks on farms in the Swartland region, both irrigated and dry farmed vines of 20 to 40 years old.
Vinification
This wine was made from ripe grapes picked to deliver a rich flavour and texture. A portion of the wine was treated in a conventional manner, with about 20% being fermented with a small number of French oak staves at 15 Celsius until about 10 balling and then cooled down to 6 degrees to bring a “Loire” winter to the wine) where it continued to slowly ferment for a further 2 months building glycerol and texture in the wine. The cooling is then turned off allowing a further period of slow fermentation. There is a small amount of Chardonnay blended into this wine.
