Background Information

Our friend Jenny Metelerkamp who lived with us at Lloyd’s camp, Botswana produced the fine Painted Wolf ink drawing for our logo and the pack labels.

Vineyard info/Viticulture

These Chenin Blanc grapes were harvested from a single block of 30-year-old vines on Leeuwenkuil Farm in Agter Paarl. The vines are growing in decomposed shale soils. This farm is located partly in Paarl and partly in Swartland, and has the same soil as many Swartland vineyards.

Vinification

The fruit was harvested at around 24 balling, pressed and settled before being fermented in barrel with natural wild yeast. The barrels used are large 2nd and 3rd fill French oak barrels. Fermentation was very slow.
