Winemaker's Notes

Bright, straw color with an aromatic nose of ripe pears, apples and flowers with a touch of honey. Fresh and intense fruit salad flavors fill the palate with delicious richness on the aftertaste. The honeyed ripeness of the Chenin is beautifully complimented by the flowery tropical fruit in its youth. Further development in the bottle creates rich, complex wine.

The biggest portion of our Chenin grapes are sourced from the Koelenhof (Greater Simonsberg) area. The weathered shale soils of this terrior brings out the intense aromatic fruitiness and full bodied structure of fully ripe Chenin Blanc grapes. In 2005 a small crop and warm dry percentage of raisened berries and even some highly sought after Botrytis. Rich and more full-bodied than 2004.
