Tasting Notes
This lovely oak aged Chenin Blanc is harvested from a single Biodynamically farmed vineyard located in the Polkadraai Hills to the west of Stellenbosch. The vines are old being in excess of 50 years old and are located on a combination of decomposed granitic loam on a clay sub-soil. The grapes were whole bunch pressed before light settling and then fermented in a combination of 300l second-fill French oak barrels and a 2500l foudré. The wine was then aged on its lees for 10 months with a further two month aging in stainless steel tank before bottling.
