Stellenrust Barrel Fermented Chenin Blanc 2020
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.
54 year old bush vines from Bottelary property planted in ironstone.
