Chenin Blanc 'Swartland', Kloof Street
  • 100% Chenin Blanc
  • Sourced from 3 sustainably farmed vineyards in different parts of the Swartland: One parcel of 40 year-old Chenin planted in the stony Shale and Schist based soils of Kasteelberg, and two parcels of 40+ year-old dry land, bush vine Chenin grown in the decomposed Granite soils of the Paardeberg
  • Hand harvested
  • The grapes were chilled in our cold room then pressed whole-bunch, which allowed for the juice to settle overnight
  • The juice was then racked to tank and older French oak barrels for fermentation with indigenous yeasts and this process lasted approximately six weeks
  • The barrels were then racked, blended with the tank fermented portion and bottled
