The Durbanville Hills Chenin Blanc fruit was sourced from Durbanville area from the farm, Groot Phesantekraal. The grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness when fruit, sugar and acid were perfectly in balance. After being gently crushed with minimal skin contact and separating the juice from the skins, the juice was cold settled for 24 hours before it was racked from its primary lees and a percentage of the light lees was added again for further complexity. The juice was inoculated with a selected yeast strain to capture the fruity aromas, and was allowed to mature for another three months after fermentation on fresh lees to create a wine with a fuller mouth feel.
PalateAn abundance of fruity aromas, citrus with a sweet oak spice. A medium bodied wine with a sweet lingering finish.
NoseYellow citrus, pineapple, peaches and apricot flavours.
