A rich style of Chenin Blanc with ripe peach and apricot aromas and tropical fruit flavours. The acidity is well balanced and the wine has a long mineral finish. An extremely versatile wine, the award-winning Old Vine Chenin Blanc pairs well with spicy curry dishes, barbecued chicken, fish and sushi, salads, citrus-flavoured foods and camembert-style cheese.
The key to our Chenin Blanc's rich flavours is the old bush vine where we source our grapes. Planted in 1977 in the Agter-Paarl region, this un-trellised, un-irrigated vineyard is hand harvested to ensure gentle handling of the grapes. We allow 40% of the wine to ferment in 225-litre oak barrels and mature for five months on its lees. For added richness and structure, the wine is stirred on its lees for the first few months. The balance of the wine is fermented in stainless-steel tanks and also allowed lees contact. After five months sur lie in tank and barrel, the wine is bottled after filtration and fining.
