Ageing

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

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.

Harvest The grapes were harvested at 22 – 23ºBrix depending on varietal and site.
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.
