Remhoogte Honeybunch 2018 Chenin

6 Bottles x 750ml Ultra Premium Chenin Blanc 

2018 was the second year of an extreme drought experienced in the Western Cape of South Africa. Crop was lowered by removing bunches to limit the stress on the vines. Grapes harvested on the 1st of February 2018, around 10 days earlier than normal.

Colour: Pale Gold

Nose: Limes, pineapple, apricots, honeysuckle, oak spice…

Palate: The palate has a limey entry and the signature honeyed mid palate followed by a distinctly saline finish which gives length and freshness.
As with all notes these are abbreviated and there is a lot more to the wine. Taste it for yourself. It will evolve and mature over the next 10 years.

The vineyard rows run from North East to South West and the vines are on a low single strand trellis. This row direction exposes the morning sun side to the prevailing summer wind out the south and shelters these bunches from the harsher afternoon sun. The Honeybunch is made from the first pick through this vineyard. All the exposed bunches on the morning sun side only are harvested. They turn a golden colour as a result of their exposure to the sun and develope a unique honeyed character.
