How it's made
Chenin is the backbone grape varietal of South Africa – it's the most profusely planted variety in our country and is closely associated to our wine-making identity. To capture the true sense of place and terrior, we've made this wine a 100% unoaked Chenin Blanc. Fermenting only in stainless steel ensures the freshness, character and liveliness of the wine is maintained. To tame some of this energy and add more complexity and depth to the final wine we keep it on it's fine lees for approximately nine months. This also adds to the lush mouthfeel and keeps the wine fresher for longer.
Yellow and tropical fruit on the nose with comice pear notes. Crisp acidity with a waxy texture and hints of citrus and lychee. Fresh mandarin tang on the palate with a bright juicy finish.
Brilliant with seafood, poultry, char-gilled vegetables.
