FAB WINES CHENIN BLANC WOODED 2015
100% Chenin Blanc
A dry-farmed Chenin Blanc from low-yielding vines on the slopes of the Olifantsberg Mountains in the Breedekloof, one of the best Chenin Blanc regions in South Africa. Picked at different ripeness levels to preserve freshness and fruit.
Result- a fruit-forward wine with a richness and creamy texture due to the time in oak. The wine retains acidity and freshness due to the concentration in the grapes. Complex and rich with a pineapple and litchi finish. Cold fermented in concrete eggs and stainless steel.
The wine was allowed to complete malolactic fermentation in old 300L barrels and mature for 9months. Beautifully aged to drink now but can cellar for another 2-3 years.
