"Chenin Blanc is best suited to be the heart of the blend and that is why it forms the biggest portion of the blend. The aromas are very complex and change considerably in the glass. Perfume, spice, tea, stone fruit and citrus blossoms are some of the notes that can be detected. In the mouth the texture and ripeness and gentle tannins result in a wine that has incredible length and complex flavour profile. The wine also has wonderful fruit volume characterized by stone fruit and mineral flavors. The finish is long and has slight phenolic edges supporting the fruit through the entire length of the wine.Small parcels of selected fruit are sourced from various vineyards on our farm Kalmoesfontein, the Swartland area and the greater Paardeberg mountain. All the grapes are cooled overnight and then whole bunch pressed the following day. The free run juice was run off directly into old casks and small concrete tank for a lengthy natural fermentation. The various varietals are blended early during the pressing if they happen to be harvested on the same day otherwise they are blended after 13 months in casks." -Winery
