IN THE VINEYARD
The grapes were sourced from trellised vineyards in Stellenbosch and Paarl. Planted between 19 84 and 1988, the vineyards grow in Clovelly, Hutton and Glenrosa soils, and are situated at altitudes of 50 m to 100 m. Grafted onto nematode-resistant rootstock Richter 99, the vines received supplementary irrigation from a micro-irrigation system.
The grapes were harvested by hand between 24Â° and 27Â° Balling from the middle of March to early May.
IN THE CELLAR
They were crushed and then cool-fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for three to four weeks at 13Â°C. The wine was not left on the lees, but instead put through the separator to prevent fermentation occurring once the desired sugar level had been reached. Skin contact was allowed for approximately four hours.
44% Chenin Blanc, 26% Weisser riesling, 13% Muscat dâ€™ Alexandrie, 10% Semillon, 7% GewÃ¼rztraminer
Enjoy as an aperitif or with mild spicy dishes, dried fruit or baked puddings.
