The wine itself:
What about the grapes? 100% Chenin Blanc
And the vineyards (terroir): The wine is made from two different blocks of Chenin Blanc, with 50% from our old vine Chenin Blanc block planted in 1981 on Zevenwacht and the other 50% coming from Zevenrivieren.
How was it made: The grapes were whole bunched pressed and cold settled overnight, after which the juice was racked to barrel and Amphora for fermentation. Occasional lees stirring was done for the first three months to fill out the mid palate and the wine remained on the gross lees for 5 months in barrel before being racked and blended. The final blend has 10% Amphora, 16% new French oak with the remainder being in seasoned barrels.
Should this wine age / mature: Chenin is a wine that develops and deepens both in color and aroma over time. As such it rewards extra complexity with age, while offering up-front fruit and freshness in its youth.
