A blend of 50% Chenin Blanc from Stellenbosch that is fermented and macerated on its skins; and 50% Grenache Blanc which is fermented 70% carbonically and then spends time on the Chenin’s skins.
90% of the wine is aged in old barrels under flor.
Honeycomb, peach, salt and nuts on the nose. A lovely citrus pith-type texture on the palate. Firm tannin (more than the 2020) and a solidly long finish.
Unique and delicious.
Christian Eedes: “Striking aromatics of citrus, apple, stone fruit, potpourri, dried herbs and almond. The palate is light (alcohol is 11.1%) but super-flavourful – pure fruit, zippy acidity and some tannic grip to the finish.”
