Vinification

2016 was one of the driest vintages we have had in South Africa. There are exceptions,
but mostly the dry winter and summer and the unusually hot months impacted on the
yields from the 2016 harvest, which were significantly less than from the year before.

Tasting Notes

Bright green apple and melon flavours, unfolding into layers of citrus and mineral
notes, finishing crisp and clean.

Grape Variety

100% Chenin Blanc

Vineyards

Bush vines were chosen to give ripeness and complexity with absolute attention to
detail throughout the pruning and suckering stages. This provided beautiful balanced
fruit towards harvest time.

Cellar Notes

This is a style made to be consumed with food within the first three years of production.

Winemaking

Handpicked, cold fermented and left on the secondary lees to add complexity and
mouthfeel.
