Made from the farm’s 38-year-old Chenin Blanc vines, grown on sandstone. The vines are trellised on an east-facing system known as skuinskap, so that the bunches receive the morning sun. 50% of this was tank fermented, and the other 50% fermented in second- and third-fill French oak barrels for a period of eight months. Subtle aromas of straw and white flowers combine with winter melon, peaches and lime zest. The palate is full, luscious and waxy with while a crispy acidity ties it all together.
