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, pear and citrus are well held together with a subtle spice and leesy complexity from the 6 months that a component of this wine spent in large French oak Foudres.

PAIRS WELL WITH
Barbeque Chicken l Braaivleis l Pork belly
