This wine is of Chenin Blanc grape variety. After harvesting, these grapes were de-stemmed, slightly crushed before pressing and given brief skin contact. Free run juice settled in the tanks overnight and the following morning, the clear settled juice, of the individual block selections (some kept separate and some blended) were racked from their lees and inoculated with selected yeast strains. Fermentation was temperature controlled. Maturation occurred on the fine lees for another three months to give extra body and elegance. The wine was not oaked.
