The vines grows in deep cool alluvial soil that is rich in lime on Wandsbeck Farm. Chenin Blanc vines is also known as Steen (Stone).
The rainfall for the region is 280 mm a year or less. Only the best grapes were hand selected at 21° 22°B and harvested from special identified vines that grows in a single vineyard towards the end of February to produce this complex limited release wine.
Wild yeast fermentation took naturally place inside six selected barrels to produce this complex wine with tropical aromas, complemented by natural acidity. Once the wine is stabilized, all the barrels is blended and then bottled and labeled by making use of a mobile bottling unit that comes to the farm. Enjoy Chilled.
Tasting Notes: Natural barrel Fermented. Refreshing and crisp. Enjoy chilled with Seafood, smoked Salmon, roasted Chicken or Pork. Wine that is slightly wooded can be kept longer. So enjoy it now, but you can also keep it for up to 3 years.
