ORIGIN
Western Cape: Breede River and Coastal regions

TERROIR / SOIL
Combination of alluvial, well-drained and aerated soils, as well as decomposed granite soils from mountain foothills.

VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS
Temperature: Winter 10ºC; Summer 26ºC Annual Rainfall: 40mm - 200mm Proximity to ocean: ≤120km
The grapes for this wine are from selected blocks on various farms in the Coastal and Breede River region of the Western Cape. Grapes sourced from trellised and bush vines and produced 10 to 15 tons per hectare.

WINEMAKING
Grapes were hand-harvested, de-stemmed and slightly crushed before pressing and brief contact on the skins. 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.

APPEARANCE
Pale straw in colour with a greenish hue.

TASTING NOTE
This Chenin Blanc 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. Perfect with friends in summer, over a picnic style meal including sesame coated chicken goujons and grilled goats cheese crottin on crisp bruschetta.

STICKY HOT WINGS WITH BLUE CHEESE DIP

A platter full of glazed sticky chicken wings is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser! The only way to get them really glossy and sticky is to re-glaze while cooking a few times. Keep on going (about 3-4 times) until you get the desired result, then serve hot or at room temperature with this zippy Southern-style blue cheese dip and a glass of Signature Chenin Blanc.
