Kaapzicht Chenin Blanc 2023

Kaapzicht Chenin Blanc 2023

R110,00

When we drink Kaapzicht’s Chenin, it takes us to sunny poolside family lunches with great friends and new mates. Whether for a casual pop-in or a longtime reunion, this wine is made for every meal — but a braai is best. Ripe quince, pineapple and stone fruit with some interesting savory undertones. Lightly textured palate, with a hint of sweetness and balancing crunchy acid, results in a brisk finish. Juicy poolside sipper, also a winner with al fresco meals.

More Information

In the cellar

Grapes are hand-harvested, crushed, destemmed and gently pressed. After pressing, the juice is settled in stainless steel tanks overnight. The clean juice is racked to its fermentation tank where the juice is inoculated with specially selected yeast strains to illustrate true varietal characters. After fermentation, the wine is racked off its gross-lees and stored in full tanks on the fine-lees until bottling. Prior to bottling, the wine is stabilised and filtered. Final additions are made before bottling under inert conditions with CO2 ranges between 1200 and 1100mg/l.

In the vineyard

Old bush vines planted in weathered granite topsoil and crumbly clay sub-soil. Yield of up to 4 tons per hectare.

Ageing

Made to be enjoyed now, however, it can be cellared for 2 to 4 years from date of vintage provided it is stored in the correct conditions.

Cultivar

100% Chenin Blanc

Food Pairing

The perfect South African pre-braai snack. It has all the elements we love in a boerie roll, just better and fresher. A really great accompaniment to our Chenin. We were certainly impressed when we tried the combination for the first time. We’re sure you will be too.
