This is a blend of 85% Chenin Blanc and 15% Clairette Blanche. The Chenin Blanc grapes
are from a single old bush vine vineyard from the northern part of the Paardeberg in
the Swartland, growing in sandy soils of granite origin. The Chenin Blanc was picked at
around 24°B. The Clairette Blanche is from a similar site and was picked at a very low sugar
(19.5°B) to preserve the acidity that is inherently low in this variety. The grapes were whole
bunch pressed. The juice was then run to 400 litre barrels after minimal settling and the
fermentation was allowed to start naturally. After fermentation, the wine was topped and
matured ‘sur lie’ for 10 months in French oak, with regular lees stirring. Only 2nd and 5th
fill barrels were used.

Winemaker: Miles Mossop. This Chenin Blanc-based wine, with 15% Clairette Blanche, has a pretty bouquet of apple flesh, white peach, honeydew, buttercup, sweet grass and a touch of beeswax. The medium-weight palate is slightly creamy, though not overdone, with ripe fruit flavors and hints of sweet spice and wood-grilled peach on the finish. Balanced and enjoyable now, but should evolve well through 2021. 92/100
