More Information

In the cellar

The grapes of this wine were whole bunch pressed and the wine was made in a very natural way with no commercial yeast, enzymes or fining agents being used. Fermentation lasted 10-14 days with regular battonage before racking. The wine was aged for 12 months in 90% seasoned French and Hungarian oak barrels and 10% in concrete eggs.

In the vineyard

Rooted in the oldest viticulture soil in the world, it is made up of decomposed granite on the lower slopes of the Helderberg Mountain. This vineyard enjoyed the refreshingly cool breezes from False Bay (Atlantic Ocean) during the day and cool air at night flowing down the mountain, resulting in even ripening of the berries and good natural acidity. The macro climate is maritime, with cold wet winters and sunny warm summers, with the Helderberg Ward being the coolest in the Stellenbosch region. The vineyards are meticulously cared for by hand. The crop is reduced to ensure maximum quality. Organic and biodynamic practices are employed by not using any pesticides, herbicides or chemical spray. 100% estate grown.

Ageing

This wine is perfect to drink now, however, it can age very well for five to eight years if stored in the proper and appropriate conditions.

Cultivar

Chenin Blanc

Food Pairing

This brilliantly light wine pairs well with the spices and aromas of Asian dish.
