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.
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.
