Groote Post Chenin Blanc 2015

This wine displays a remarkable fruitiness to it that lends to a sweeter style Chenin Blanc, which makes this a very drinkable wine indeed. The 2015 vintage has an abundance of apricot and guava flavours.

about the harvest: Very dry conditions in the Western Cape (August 2014 - May 2015) and earlier flowering contributed to a very early harvest. The earliest I have experienced since our first vintage in
1999. These conditions contributed to very small and compact bunches. The fruit were very healthy and because of this (and the smaller berries), very concentrated, fruit driven wine was the end result.

in the cellar : The wine was tank fermented and made in a fresh style to maintain the natural flavours that were so plentiful this year.
