2020 Chenin Blanc

2020 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.
For a change we had a normal winter in 2019. Cold and very wet with
some snow to fill the dams. Summer started with a bang with early
bud break and a very early start to the harvest season. Most of the
Chenin’s were harvested about 10 days earlier than 2019. We had a
very moderate but dry summer, exactly what we want for quality wine
production.
