2019 FR Chenin Blanc

2019 FR Chenin Blanc

The Family Reserve Chenin Blanc 2019 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 was suckered and tipped to ensure a cool micro climate around the grapes with no direct sun and without botrytis. 2019 was one of the best vintages in decades. Moderate day temperatures and cool nights with very little rain during the ripening of the Chenin meant we had near perfect grapes to work with. Healthy and bursting with flavor.
