Ageing

Barrel maturation gives the wine potential to develop over 3 – 5 years.

BlendPercent 60% Chenin, 22% Chardonnay, 10% Viognier, 8% Semillon
Cellar

After pressing,100% of the juice was settled and racked to 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th fill 500l barrels.  10 months barrel ageing on the lees for a richer mouthfeel and complexity without dominating the wine with oak – respecting the fruit.  Extended post-fermentation lees contact lends a mid-palate weight and a creamy texture.

100% barrel fermented and matured for 10 months.

Variety Chenin Blanc
Vineyard

The Chenin Blanc comes from low yielding old vines (38 years). All these vineyards are lying at altitudes that range from 300-500 meters above sea level; these higher elevated slopes tend to give the blending partners a beautiful natural acidity, resulting in a pleasant pungency. The richness and full-bodied fruit has been accentuated by the open canopies of the vineyards during ripening. All these flavours are backed with a flinty minerality from the decomposed granite soils of the PolkadraaiHills.
