Description

TASTING NOTE
The aromatics are super complex and spicy with lovely nuances of wet straw, dusty white citrus, honeyed yellow peaches, fynbos and sweet pineapple confit. There is focused depth, full bodied plump texture and complexity with nuances of tangerine peel, naartjie pulp and lychee.

IN THE VINEYARD
Old bush vine planted by Danie Jnr’s great-grandfather in 1947. The vineyard has been registered as a single vineyard, making it the second oldest Chenin block in the country. Originally 6ha in size,
only 1.1ha of the very low yielding vineyard remains.

IN THE CELLAR
Grapes harvested from the second oldest registered heritage vineyard. Handpicked, 50% whole-bunch pressed, 50% crushed and destemmed (with skin-contact in press). Natural sedimentation overnight after pressing (light and gentle pressing with maximumpressure of 0.8kpa). After settling, the wine is racked to 500l barrels for spontaneous fermentation. Fermentation can last between 2–4weeks. The wine is aged in barrel for 10 months prior to bottling and
bottled unfiltered and unfined.
