CULTIVAR: 100% Chenin Blanc
WINE OF ORIGIN: Wellington
HARVEST DATE: February 2021
YIELD: 8 ton/ha
Grapes were picked at two different ripeness levels, de-stemmed, crushed and given 2 hours soaking in the press. After pressing, the juice settled in tank for 3 days and was inoculated with yeast. Low fermentation temperatures of 13 degrees were maintained for the 3 week fermentation period. The wine was racked and prepared for bottling.
This unwooded Chenin Blanc boasts with a bouquet of fresh guava, white pear and passion fruit. These tropical nuances follow through to the palate, finishing with a well-balanced acidity and a lasting finish.
Enjoy during a long lazy lunch by the ocean with every seafood imaginable. Chenin Blanc can handle an element of fruit and would be the perfect partner with a light Chicken salad with added apple or pear.
