100% Chenin Blanc, planted 1961 & 1998.
The wine is a blend of two vineyards from the West Coast area of the Swartland. The first is bush vines on the foothills of the Piketberg mountains in Moutons Hoek planted in 1961 on decomposed sandstone at 150m altitude. The second vineyard planted in 1998 on decomposed granite at 300m is close to Redelinghuys and 18km from the cold Atlantic ocean on the West Coast. The vineyard is unirrigated and gives a specific saltiness to the grapes.
Hand harvested and whole bunch pressed. The purity of fruit this year and the very soft edges makes this wine delicious.
