2018 Chenin Blanc Reserve

The grapes were harvested from low yield-bearing bush and trellised
vineyards from Stellenbosch, Paarl and Breedekloof Valley. These
vineyards are situated on predominately southwestern facing slopes. A
combination of sand and deep red soils with good water retention led
to good root development, supplying the vines with optimum moisture
during the summer ripening period and 3 year drought. Yields averaged
between 10 to 15 tons per hectare. The blocks were divided in two
sections, bush vines and trellised, and the canopy was left without
removal of any shoots on the bush vine section which was harvested
later.
