This is a combination of grapes from the second oldest vineyard of Chenin Blanc in South Africa, planted in 1947, and another 55 year old bushvine vineyard. The wine was made with the absolute minimum intervention and to allow the old vines to express the true flavours of the site and variety with as gentle a human touch as possible.
Soil type: Sandy, loam topsoil to granitic gravel subsoils
All grapes were hand picked from two vineyards of bushvines planted in 1947 and 1961, pressed whole bunch and then fermented with natural yeast in older French oak barrels. Sulphured after primary fermentation to prevent MLF, followed by 11 months maturation on the lees.
