Wine Style:

White - Buttery and Complex.

Tasting Notes:

Light, pale golden straw hue. Clear and brilliant. An elegant, linear nose of herb, orange peel and pear settle into layers of almond, white flowers and apricot. The palate is richly textured, with naartjie and a lemony undertone and fantastic natural acidity and freshness typical of old vine Chenin.

Gastronomy:

Delicious with creamy, earthy white rind cheeses like Brie, savoury tarts, or simple, pan-fried scallops.

Vineyards:

The majority of the fruit comes from the Paardeberg region of the Swart- land (60%), and the rest is from the Contermanskloof farm in the Durbanville area (40%). Both are estimated to be over 40 years old, are dryland bush vine and have never been irrigated. These vineyards are very labour intensive to farm, and as a result of the arid conditions, yield little fruit (between one and three tons per hectare).

Ageing method:

9 months in French oak.

Winemaking process:

The grapes were whole bunch pressed with no additions. After an overnight rough settling in tank, the juice was transferred to 400 and 500L old French oak barrels, where it fermented wild and remained for 9 months until blending before bottling.
