Description
BlendPercentChenin Blanc, Muscat de Alexandrie
Cellar

Grapes are crushed and some skin contact allowed for extraction. The juice is taken directly to barrels and fermented naturally over a period of 2 to 3 weeks. The Chenin Blanc and Muscat ferment separately and the wine blended after a period of 12 months in barrel.

FoodSuggest

Wonderful accompaniment to desserts, but goes extremely well with baked naartjie basket filled with ice-cream and topped with a caramel dressing.

Harvest

Grapes are picked between 36 - 40° Balling.

VarietyChenin Blanc
Vineyard

The vines are located on our Bottelary property. It is a mixture of over 50 year old Chenin blanc bush vines, and over 70 year old Muscat de Alexandrie trellised vines. Grapes are allowed to contract botrytis, before being harvested. For this reason, the Muscat is only harvested in May after the first winter rains, where picking normally stops at the end of March in Stellenbosch.
