Awards/Reviews

4 Stars 2020 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
19 (88 pts) out of the blocks with verve, delightful red apple juiciness & tangy acidity. Just as irresistible as Super Premium siblings. Also from mature vines, treated with equal care, natural ferment, 16% in older oak, 5 months on lees.

Winemaker Notes

Grapes are allowed short skin contact and natural settling in tank. 16% is fermented in 3rd and 4th fill French oak barrels and 84% in stainless steel after which both portions are kept 5 months on the fermentation lees before it is blended and fined. Fermentation is a slow natural process and wild yeast ferments like this can take up to 3 months to finish.

Time Spent on Lees: 5 months 16% in older French oak and 54% in stainless steel.

 

This Chenin Blanc shows strong lime and some tropical fruit on the nose with a mineral palate of grape fruit and pear drop.
