ORIGIN

Cape Town

TERROIR / SOIL

Red Oakleaf soils very close to the Atlantic Ocean.

VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS

Trellised, dryland farm vineyards yielded the grapes for this wine. A westerly coastal breeze cooled down the midday temperatures. The big difference between day and night temperatures also leads to cold climate conditions which are perfect for this style of Chenin Blanc.

WINEMAKING

Grapes were machine harvested very early in the morning while they were still cold. At the cellar, skin contact was limited to 4 hours and the free-run juice drained off to settle overnight before inoculation. The fermentation took place in stainless-steel tanks at ±12oC.

TASTING NOTE

Strong aromas of white peach, melon, passionfruit and gooseberry. The full and rounded palate is packed with mouthwatering fruit and has well-balanced acidity.
