Chenin Blanc
2017
2017

This wine is made with 100% Chenin Blanc grapes from select bush vine vineyards in the Swartland and Voor-Paardeberg regions of South Africa. These grapes contribute a balances of freshness and natural acidity to this medium bodied, crisp white wine.

 

Early ripening conditions saw the first fruit arrive at the cellar mid-way through January. Although drought conditions persisted, ideal weather conditions throughout the growing season and harvest resulted in healthy fruit and small berries with great favors and exceptional acids. A great vintage!
