Savory and herbal aromas, subtle stone fruit and citrus blossom notes, vibrant lemon zest sprinkled with sea water. Mineral driven with ample weight balanced by poignant acid on the finish.

The grapes for this are 100% from the Swartland region. Grown on predominately granitic and shale soils that are common in the region. The vines are predominately between 20-30 years old and are a mix of bush vines and vertically trained vines. 2016 was a very early year and these grapes were harvested in the first week of February. A cool, controlled fermentation occurred in stainless steel and was left on it's lees for 5 months. Malolactic fermentation was blocked to maintain the freshness and acidity. Chenin Blanc has proven to be very happy in the Swartland region with vast plantings that are showing great varietal character and provenance.
