    Description

    CELLAR INFORMATION Each vineyard is harvested and vinified separately to insure maximum complexity. All our fruit are hand-picked in the early morning and handled reductively to preserve the integrity of the fruit. After destemming a period of skin contact is allowed according to chemical analysis, phenolic and flavour ripeness. A light pressing is followed by 3days of cold settling to clarify the juice. A maximum of 600l/ton is recovered at this stage. Each vineyard is inoculated with selected yeast to match its flavour profile. Fermentation lasts for 21-30days at 13-16°C. 2 Months of full lees contact, with regular stirring, is allowed post fermentation to add richness and texture to the wine. The components are then blended and stabilized prior to bottling. VINEYARD INFORMATION The fruit for our 2022 Chenin Blanc was sourced from unirrigated old bush vines growing in the Simonsberg-Paarl region of the Western Cape of South Africa. Each site contributes a different flavour profile to the final blend as it grows on diverse soil types and slopes. Each vineyard is handled separately to capture its unique personality.
