Chenin Blanc 'QUARTZ - Leliefontein'

Chenin Blanc 'QUARTZ - Leliefontein', Mullineux

Grapes for the 2016 Mullineux Quartz Chenin were from a single parcel of sustainably farmed 35-year-old vines planted in a quartz kloof on the Kasteelberg call Leliefontein.  This parcel of Chenin gives the best expression of  this quartz terroir – fresh minerality with lovely texture. . The grapes are pressed whole-bunch and racked to barrel for alcoholic and malolactic fermentation with indigenous yeasts. The wine ages in 3rd and 4th fill French oak barrels for eleven months and bottled unfiltered. ABV 13%, pH 3.45. 130 cases produced.
