OLD VINES CHENIN 2016
Like its much sought-after earlier vintages, the 2016 is 100% Chenin Blanc. This wine represents a blend of terroirs with the grapes coming from the same 35-50 year old vines in the Swartland, Durbanville and Stellenbosch. Whole bunch pressed, the juice underwent natural fermentation in 3rd fill French oak barrels where it was kept on the lees. The wine spent a year in barrel and shows luxurious body along with a striking purity and strong line of acidity.
With minimal interference and no additions barring some sulphites, this wine will age for 30+ years.
