Grapes for this wine is harvested from a 54 year old single vineyard of Chenin blanc on the slopes of the Bottelary Hills, hence the number on the front of the bottle referring to age of the vines in the year the wine was made
100% Chenin Blanc
This Chenin will compliment an array of dishes: from orange infused duck confit to lemon infused Norwegian salmon on a bed of creamed spinach and potato puree.
Again careful attention to every grape coming into the cellar was necessary in the dry and arid 2018 vintage. Even though warmer temperatures than normal occurred during the harvest, hanging time was in line with other vintages. Botrytis development also took some time but did eventually occur after mid March drizzles.
