Winemaker: Louis van der Riet
Grape varietal: Chenin Blanc
Perfectly balanced vines grown on the banks of the Gamka River are harvested beginning of March at 22-230 Balling to ensure an abundance of ripe fruit flavours. Clone SN 9E provides the backbone for this fruit driven wine.
Harvesting takes place early morning to ensure the coolest possible berries. Only free-run juice is separated after crushing to cut the risk of phenolic oxidation. The juice is then slowly fermented for more than a month and left on the lees for another couple of months to give maximum freshness and roundness.
Colour: Clear crisp translucent colour with fresh yellow, green hue.
Bouquet: Fresh ripe tropical fruit salad, ripe banana, guava and passion fruit with hints of lime and flintiness.
Taste: Abundance of soft fresh tropical fruits well-rounded smooth structure and lingering aftertaste.
Great on its own during a hot Sunday braai, with fresh snoek or braaied chicken. Also good with pasta’s and salads.
