VINIFICATION & VITICULTURAL DETAILS
The Chenin blanc grapes were handpicked in early February from old, bush vines, planted on decomposed granite from Joubertskloof in Swartland, delivering only 2 tons/ha (11hL/ha). The vineyard block is irrigated and is east
facing which contributes to the favourably low pH. After picking, the grapes were then cooled overnight to 10 degrees celcius and hand-sorted the next day followed by a gentle whole bunch press. No sulphur or any other additions were made to the must at pressing. Natural fermentation took place in 225L and 300L French oak barrels followed by natural malolactic fermentation (after which the wine received the first sulphur addition). The wine was racked off the gross lees in early January 2020 and bottled later that month.
