Speciality by lot
  • Terroir
    The Chenin blanc grapes are sourced from beautiful organic vineyards situated 32km inland from the Atlantic Ocean, on the valley floor of a hot and semi-arid region. The vines are planted in loamy soils, which adds a great flavour profile to the Chenin blanc grapes.
  • Vinification and maturation
    The grapes are bunch sorted and destemmed and naturally fermented in stainless steel. After 6 months further ageing on the lees, the assemblage is made up and bottled.
  • Features
    Notes of quince, pear and yellow apple are apparent on the nose, with notes of star fruit and sweet pineapple. The palate is fresh and vibrant, showing flavors of lemon zest and apple. The wine has well integrated acid, good structure, core and a nice long finish.
  • Other information
    Sugar content: 1.4 g/L
