2018 Chenin Blanc

2018 Chenin Blanc

The grapes for this wine comes from selected vineyards in
Stellenbosch and Paarl. Owing to the nature of bush vines, careful
canopy management was exercised so that no bunches were
exposed to excessive sunlight and an even ripening of the grapes. A
dry winter combined with an early spring led to an early bud break
and thus early start to the growing season. The 2018 summer started
very warm, but became a moderate to cool vintage with very cool
evenings. Although it was very dry, these bushvine vineyards (with
their deep and well established roots) looked and tasted spectacular.
