David Chenin Blanc 2014:
Grapes from six different Swartland Chenin blanc vineyards are used (ages vary from 33 to 49 years), mostly bush vines and dry land farmed.
The grapes are whole bunch pressed and cold settling is allowed for the juice before racking into barrel for spontaneous fermentation. The wines age from vintage to vintage in old 300 L French barrels. No enzymes, acid, yeasts, nutrients are used and we focus on minimal intervention (use only sulphur).
