Christian Eedes rating: 93/100

Over the last 10 years we have made Chenin blanc our main focus at Opstal with our Carl Everson wine being the flag bearer. Our beloved Carl Everson has done most of the heavy lifting, but now we have 2 new Chenin crackers to compliment and show off our estate’s identity and further drive home the message that Chenin feels at home in our soils. We have Chenin planted on different soil types, sites and slopes with further differences in clones and rootstock combinations. In the cellar we have different vessels which we feel goes best with these different types of Chenin juices to best depict the differences mentioned earlier. That brought about the Single Site Series where we celebrate the excellence of Chenin blanc. These are small batch wines, available in limited quantities as we want most of our sales partners and markets to also have some to share in telling the Opstal story.

NOTES FROM THE WINEMAKER

Over time we have come to learn that this Old Vine certified vineyard offers many different attributes throughout ripening, so we picked the vineyard in multiple pickings over the span of 3 weeks. The aim of this Eenvoud 2022 (translated to simplicity) is to best show the purity of our 1982 planted vineyard with an old school SN1061 clone. We used concrete as a fermentation and maturation vessel which brings out the minerality and elegance of fruit notes. A 15% skin fermented component from the same vineyard was also added and matured in the same vessel for 10 months before bottling. This wine has an alcohol of 12,7 and even though the acidity is lower than that of the Bergsteen, it still has plenty of life and energy. Both wines were kept in bottle for 12 months before releasing in February 2024.
