FoodSuggestThis Chenin will compliment an array of dishes: from orange infused duck confit to lemon infused Norwegian salmon on a bed of creamed spinach and potato puree.
Ageing
CellarThe juice is then drawn off into a special selection of barrels and allowed to ferment naturally. Fermentation took just under 8 months to finish and the wine was kept on the fermentation lees for an additional 1 month. 9 months in oak: 90% French and 10% Hungarian oak.
HarvestGrapes are harvested between 22 and 24 balling and the juice allowed to settle without enzymes over several days
Vineyard

Again careful attention to every grape coming into the cellar was necessary in the dry and arid 2018 vintage. Even though warmer temperatures than normal occurred during the harvest, hanging time was in line with other vintages. Botrytis development also took some time but did eventually occur after mid March drizzles.

54 year old bush vines from Bottelary property planted in ironstone.
