TASTING NOTES

Sourced from two old vine blocks in Stellenbosch, one at 450 metres, the other at 400 metres, this stunning dry-farmed Chenin was fermented in clay this year, with no oak at all. Intense, concentrated stuff with mouth-watering acidity, incredible focus and precision and a long, stony, crunchy finish.
