False Bay Slow Chenin Blanc
Grape Variety: 100% Chenin Blanc
The grapes for False Bay Slow Chenin Blanc stem from old bush vines in the famed Swartland and Stellenbosch regions. Slow Chenin Blanc is not fermented with fast-acting, or 'aroma-enhancing’ commercially selected yeast. The grapes do not take three weeks to get from vineyard to bottle. It is crafted the wild way – old vine fruit, fermented with wild yeast found naturally on the grapes…not in a packet. This magical transformation takes at least six months.
Tasting Note: Dried herbaceous notes, including fennel and aniseed, dominate the nose, followed by a creamy lemon character and rich, textural finish.
