How to Serve:
Our meal suggestions:
Delicious with full flavoured grilled fish, sumptuous lobster and avocado salad or chicken fillets dressed with a creamy basil sauce. Also a great partner to Thai food.
The wine itself:
Ripe and exotic, a distinctive, spicy, perfumed wine that is rich and subtly oaked. Complex aromas of dried yellow fruits and spice with a refreshing lime and citrus finish.
What about the grapes?
This wine consists of 60% Chenin, 22% Chardonnay, 10% Viognier, & 8% Semillon
And the vineyards (terroir):
The Chenin Blanc comes from low yielding old vines (38 years). All these vineyards are lying at altitudes that range from 300-500 meters above sea level; these higher elevated slopes tend to give the blending partners a beautiful natural acidity, resulting in a pleasant pungency. The richness and full-bodied fruit has been accentuated by the open canopies of the vineyards during ripening. All these flavours are backed with a flinty minerality from the decomposed granite soils of the Polkadraai Hills.
How was it made:
The grapes were harvested at 22 – 23ºBrix depending on varietal and site. After pressing, 100% of the juice was settled and racked to 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th fill 500l barrels. 10 months barrel ageing on the lees for a richer mouth feel and complexity without dominating the wine with oak – respecting the fruit. Extended post fermentation lees contact lends a mid-palate weight and a creamy texture.
Should this wine age / mature:
Barrel maturation gives the wine potential to develop over 3 – 5 years.
100% barrel fermented and matured for 10 months.
