Vinification Details

The grapes were harvested separately at sugar levels of 22 and 23° early in the morning and immediately cooled down to 12°C. Extension skin contact on both blending components followed and after a settling period, the wine was cold fermented and left on the lees for three months. 30% Of the rich and riper, slightly botrytis style originated from the bush vine vineyards were blended with 70% of the fresh and fruitier trellised vineyards which were earlier harvested

Amazing

This wine was a total surprise. It is refreshing with complex notes, I found myself drinking it very slowly so as to really appreciate the taste. I couldn't wait to order it again.

Like a Spring afternoon

This is the chenin blanc I want - not like the one I reviewed yesterday. Fresh, crisp, zingy. Tastes like a sunlit afternoon in Spring, laden with apple-blossom.

Very drinkable

Not usually a fan of chenin blanc, but this one is lovely and full of flavour.
