An expression of Chenin Blanc’s sincerity, untouched by any winemaking intervention. The juice is not sulphured and is allowed to pick up oxygen, producing more of the yellow stone fruit the grape variety is so well known for. The nose is distinct with canned pineapple and supported by more yellow aromas with oxidative notes. No residual sugar or wood was added, and the wine finished wild yeast fermentation in tank Chenin Blanc as naked and unadorned as it can be.
100% Chenin. Wine untouched by man. Grapes handled oxidatively, 6-hour skin contact, wild ferment in tank, 7 months in tank on fermentation lees. NO WOOD, NO SUGAR.
The first wine of 3 showing Chenin’s versatility and diversity harvested from the same block on the same day but following 3 different routes in the winery. Untouched by the winemaker.
