Cavalli Chenin Blanc Reserve 2022

Cavalli Chenin Blanc Reserve 2022


This fruit-focused and supple Chenin blanc shows notes of fresh stone fruit, pear and sweet melon with the floral aroma of peach blossom. The tropical hint of pineapple on the palate is complemented by a delicate spice and vanilla. The wine finishes with a pithy line of citrus and a vibrant, lingering acidity.

More Information

In the cellar

The Chenin Blanc is crushed and destemmed followed by fermentation in French oak barrels with a combination of new, 2nd fill and 3rd fill 225L barrels. The wine is kept on its fermentation lees with the occasional batonnage for 10 months until bottling.

In the vineyard

Grapes were hand-picked in the early morning at Cavalli in two separate pickings. Grapes were wholebunch pressed and settled overnight to achieve good clarity of juice. The juice was sent to barrel and inoculated in two separate batches. Fermentation was completed in barrel and the wine kept on its lees until bottling.


This wine has some ageing potential and can be aged for three to five years, provided it is kept in the proper and appropriate conditions.
