It’s all about balance
The 2021 Chenin Blanc Old Vine Reserve is hand-picked from organically-farmed vines picked over two passes through the vineyard, 400-litre barrel and tank-fermented with nine months in French oak (20% new).
It’s produced from sustainably-grown, dry-farmed grapes from six different Stellenbosch vineyards from vines averaging 40 years of age.
Full Bodied, melon aromas. A lovely layered sense of flavours. Then it gets complex and soft. There is great body. The more complex the meal you are enjoying the more you’ll enjoy this one. It has one of the longest finishes of wines we sampled over the years.
It’s an outstanding Chenin.
