2017 FR Chenin Blanc
The Family Reserve Chenin Blanc 2017 was crafted from three different
wards and soils (Decomposed Granite, Oakleaf and Duplex) in
Stellenbosch, each contributing to the complexity of this wine. These
vineyards are all over 40 years old and unirrigated bush vines. The
canopy of the bush vines were suckered and tipped to ensure a cool
micro climate around the grapes with no direct sun and without botrytis.
The 2017 vintage was in the middle of a very long drought, but these old
vineyards with its well established roots looked better than ever.
