Groote Post Chenin Blanc 2010

From the only bush vines on the farm, a bright, full style with a tropical fruit-salad palate and green apple flavours. A very good length and body for this vintage and, as it's bottled under screw cap, will preserve its freshness and verve for a good few years to come. Excellent value for money.

about the harvest: We had an almost mini 'Ice Age' that led to a very late harvest of this cultivar. These cooler conditions led to the beautiful guava and green-apple flavours.
Yield: 5t/ha

in the cellar : The cooler conditions helped maintain freshness with a lower sugar level and resultant lower alcohol. The wine was tank fermented. This wine was made in a fresh style to maintain the natural flavours of the Chenin Blanc grapes.
