Analysis

Alc 14%

Ph 3.56

RS 3.4 g/l

Vinification

60% Chenin Blanc grapes were hand-harvested from 32-year old vines. It was gently pressed and then fermented in old large French oak barrels for one year. 40% Viognier from high on the slopes of the Franschhoek mountains was whole bunch pressed and aged in new, and older, French oak barriques for one year. Perfectly blended to create a sublime blend of two classic varieties.

Style

It is a rich and perfumed wine which is barrel fermented and aged. While blend intrigues and offers immense pleasure now, and rewards further with cellaring for up to 5 years.

Serving suggestion

Fresh seafood platters, delicious steamed mussel pots or fresh crusty home baked bread and rich farm butter.
