This wine is done in collaboration with like-minded farmers who share our love for Chenin Blanc. Mainly older bush vines and some younger vines from unique sites were chosen to create this exciting wine. Natural fermentation took place in a 5000 litre French oak cask, some 2000 litre French oak foudres, seasoned barrels and stainless steel tanks. The use of different vessels meant different expressions of the Chenin Blanc fruit. The wine was aged for 9 months on the lees contributing to the freshness and richness of the wine. This wine exudes many layers of fruit. It can be served either at 11ᵒC or at 14ᵒC; it will develop beautifully in the glass. The elegant oak contribution adds to the texture and complexity of the wine. A rich and creamy finish to this delicious wine.
