Signature Chenin Blanc 2017
This Chenin Blanc is crisp and fruity, delicious on its own or with crumbed fish or chicken.
Combination of alluvial, well drained and aerated soils as well as decomposed granite soils from mountain foothills.
This Chenin is both crisp and fruity with green guava, pear, apple and hints of litchi on the nose. A well-balanced palate and a strong finish.
Grapes were hand harvested, de-stemmed and slightly crushed before pressing and given brief skin contact. Free run juice settled in the tanks overnight. The following morning the clear settled juice of the individual block selections (some kept separate and some blended) were racked from their lees and inoculated with selected yeast strains. Fermentation was temperature controlled. Maturation occurred on the fine lees for another three months to give extra body and elegance. The wine is not oaked.
Serve with crispy bacon, feta and shredded spinach salad, tender fillet of sole in parsley butter or creamy goat's cheese, sushi, pasta and pizza.Download Tasting Notes
