Pale to lemon straw in colour with a very faint haze. Fresh fragrant nose with aromas of ripe apples, stone fruit and a nutty almond note. The palate has ripe stone fruit and green apple fruit flavours, a fine acid backbone with a slight salty/wet stone textural element, crisp and dry. There is no doubt this wine will deliver every single sip you will have. By riddling we make sure the inside is also exposed to the sun, so the selected bunches get more colour and flavour.

We are creating the best environment for the Chenin to ripen. A real hands-on job! We riddled the golden bunches from the North facing side of the vines and hand-picked these. After a cold settle, we foot stamped the bunches, followed by a whole bunch press. The wild alcoholic fermentation took place in barrel and puncheon, and we kept the wine in those barrels for a malolactic fermentation with a total maturation of 10 months.
