This Chenin Blanc is sourced from vines grown on sandy loams over granite bedrock, the classic Cape
soils type. No irrigation is used in the vineyards and very little crop control is needed due to the age of
the vines naturally restricting yield. Part of the blend is wild yeast fermented and a tiny percentage in
old barrels. The wine is left on fine lees for an extended period for greater palate weight and
This wine displays notes of white peach and zippy citrus aromas with delicate apple fruit on the palate
balanced by crisp acidity. Extended lees contact gives this great value wine some real weight and
character, the barrell fermented component adds texture and finesse too.
A great partner to grilled fish, chicken and salads. Wonderful with Cape Malay curries, spicy mango
salads and brightly flavoured pan-Asian cuisine.
