Appearance: Pale straw in colour with a greenish hue.
This Chenin Blanc is both crisp and fruity with green guava, pear, apple and hints of litchi on the nose. A well-balanced palate and a strong finish. Perfect with friends in summer, over a picnic style meal including sesame coated chicken goujons and grilled goats cheese crottin on crisp bruschetta.

Serve with crispy bacon, feta and shredded spinach salad, tender fillet of sole in parsley butter or creamy goat's cheese, sushi, pasta and pizza.

The grapes for this wine are from selected blocks on various farms in the Coastal and Breede River region of the Western Cape. Grapes sourced from trellised and bush vines and produced 10 to 15 tons per hectare.

about the harvest: Grapes were hand harvested.

in the cellar : Grapes were hand-harvested, de-stemmed and slightly crushed before pressing and brief contact on the skins. Free run juice settled in the tanks overnight. The following morning the clear settled juice of the individual block selections (some kept separate and some blended) were racked from their lees and inoculated with selected yeast strains. Fermentation was temperature controlled. Maturation occurred on the fine lees for another three months to give extra body and elegance. The wine is not oaked.
