This is a barrel-fermented white blend of Chenin Blanc (42%), Roussanne (30%), Verdelho (17%) and Viognier (11%). This is a single-vineyard wine from the first vineyard you see when you drive on to our Oude Nektar farm. It is a tricky block, with a mix of soils and we tried to turn that into a positive by planting it as a blend. The grapes are all picked at the same time and pressed and fermented together as a true “field blend” 100% barrel fermented in mostly older, neutral oak. An elegant blend combining the richness of Roussanne and Viognier with the bright fruits and natural acidity of Chenin and Verdelho.
