A delicate gold colour, this Chenin Blanc has plenty to offer on the nose: quince, citrus and stone fruit to name but a few notes. Juicy on the palate, with exotic fruit like litchi and pineapple that leads to a refreshing and zesty finish.
Delicious with chicken pad thai, fish and chips, avocado and smoked trout salad.
Pale gold with a vibrant lemon rind rim.

WINEMAKER: Tania Kleintjies
ORIGIN: Coastal region
TERROIR / SOIL:
From terroir unfettered by artificial pesticides, fungicides and fertilizers. The grapes are sourced from both trellised and bush vines aged between 15 and 25 years old and managed to international organic standards. The vines grow in decomposed granite soils with a high clay concentration in the regions of Paarl and Groenekloof. The average annual rainfall for these vineyards ranges between 450mm and 500mm.
The organically-grown grapes were harvested at optimal ripeness, de-stemmed and crushed into stainless steel tanks to retain freshness and concentrate intense fruit aromas. The wine spent four months on its lees to enhance its structure and boost flavour development.
