Ageing
Cellar

Grapes are allowed short skin contact and natural settling in tank. 16% is fermented in 3rd and 4th fill French oak barrels and 84% in stainless steel after which both portions are kept 5 months on the fermentation lees before it is blended and fined. Fermentation is a slow natural process and wild yeast ferments like this can take up to 3 months to finish.

Time Spent on Lees: 5 months 16% in older French oak and 54% in stainless steel

Harvest

Grapes are harvested from decomposed granite soils and vineyards varying in age but non younger than 30 years and up to 43 years of age.

Vineyard

A cold but dry winter in 2017, allowed for early budding and foliage development in Spring to create a good environment for the ripening of Chenin Blanc through a dry but cooler 2018 summer.
