Chenin Blanc 'Noble Late Harvest'
Chenin Blanc 'Noble Late Harvest', Joostenberg
- Sourced from a 29 year old, organically farmed, unirrigated Chenin Blanc vineyard on Joostenberg
- The grapes were “whole-bunch” pressed and naturally fermented
- Fermentation and maturation occurred mainly in old oak barrels
- The wine spent 8 months in these barrels before being bottled
The wine has a beautiful golden straw color. The nose & palate are characterized by wax, apricot, pineapple, marmalade and honey comb flavors. There is plenty of sweetness (more than most vintages) and the finish is marked by lingering acidity.
