100% Chenin Blanc. Old vine (1978) Chenin Blanc vineyard planted along the contours of Sinai Hill below the Helderberg. Dry grown and bush vine, Bernhard tends this vineyard with the utmost care and attention. 50% was de-stemmed and soaked with skins for 48 hours before being pressed. The other 50% was whole bunch pressed. Both portions landed in concrete (a first in 2021) for natural fermentation and aged on lees for 9 months.
An exceptional wine of intensity and balance. Truly world class.
Christian Eedes (Winemag): 94/100
