NOTES FROM THE WINEMAKER:
We have Chenin planted on various sites on our farm and this wine is a mash-up of the best of these sites. It has a great balance of zippy freshness to go with its aromatic complexity. Attractive aromas of pineapple, peach and citrus are well held together with a subtle spice and leesy complexity from the 8 months spent in large French oak Foudres.
CRUSING & DESTEMMING Grapes were crushed, destalked and pressed after 8 hours of skin contact
FERMENTATION METHOD Spontaneous fermentation – 75% in large French oak vessels called Foudre, and 25% in stainless steel.
MALOLACTIC 8 months maturation on the fermentation lees in both oak and stainless steel.
