Chenin Blanc – Chardonnay

An explosion of ripe tropical fruit flavours on the pallet. The natural fermentation gives it a layered fruit dimension that ends in a lusciously juicy finish that is very well integrated and balanced with a bright acidity supported by the subtle use of wood

Wine specs

In The Vineyard

Grapes were sourced from a cross section of regions selected for optimal expression of each varietal. Vineyard tactics included pruning to two-bud spurs, shoot removal, bunch thinning and canopy management to best ripeness and quality.

Wine specs

The Harvest

Each block of grapes was intensely monitored to determine optimum ripeness and so ensuring a wine with a fresh and fruity character unique to both varietals

Wine specs

In The Cellar

The grapes were crushed then pressed, and the juice cold settled for two days. Fermentation took place at 14° – 16° C. Following fermentation, the varieties were blended allowing the varietal character of each one to enhance the complexity and depth of the blend. The wine was left on the fine lees for complexity and integration.
