Blend Information

100% Chenin Blanc

In the Vineyard

The fruit comes from 3 blocks including 40 % old bush vines.

About the Harvest

The majority of the grapes are picked midseason by hand at optimum ripeness. A component was picked earlier to introduce freshness due to the warmer vintage. 2020 was a healthy vintage and there was virtually no botrytis.

In the Cellar

After crushing and destalking, about 4 hours of skin contact is allowed before gently pressing. The earlier picked portion was whole bunch pressed. After overnight settling the clear juice is spontaneously cold fermented Fifty percent of the wine was fermented in oak but removed immediately after fermentation. The blend remains “sur lie” for 2 months prior to stabilization and bottling.
