Tasting Notes



VEGAN FRIENDLY!

An elegant full bodied wine with tropical flavors of creamy pineapple, melon and vanilla. The wine has a lovely texture with a long finish with enough acid to keep it really fresh and vibrant. The wine has been sealed with a screw cap to maintain its freshness.

Food Accompaniments

Light curries, chicken, fish, pasta prima vera

Fresh apricots and peaches with delicate white flower, chamomile and orange blossom notes. A mineral-driven palate and a lively freshness.



Winemaker Notes

Chenin Blanc is harvested off a number of blocks on Leeuwenkuil farm. The grapes are off blocks which are irrigated and dry farmed blocks and from vines of 20 to 40 years old. This wine was made from ripe grapes picked to deliver a rich flavor and texture. The wine was fermented at 15 Celsius till about 10 balling and then cooled down to 8 degrees where it continued to slowly ferment for a further 2 months building glycerol in the wine.
