ABOUT THE WINE
The backbone of this blend is Chenin Blanc from a 46 year old unirrigated vineyard called 'Riverside' and this is complimented by Chenin from two younger vineyards and varying fractions of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier. All grapes used in producing our wines are grown on Keermont Vineyards. The wines are fermented by indigenous yeast in seasoned French oak barrels and then spend a further 12 months maturing on the lees. Bottling is carried out by hand without filtration.
A polished light yellow gold colour, this wine has a bouquet driven by vanilla and butterscotch with undertones of peach and cut grass. Upfront fruit flavours of peach and apricot are complimented by hints of spice and green pepper as well as a touch of oak. The palate has a crunchy apple acidity which holds the wine together into a long succulent dry finish.
