Chenin Blanc, Silwervis
100% Chenin Blanc
Swartland, South Africa
The Chenin Blanc grapes are sourced from a single vineyard located on the decomposed granite soils of the Paardeberg. Harvest is done by hand and the grapes are left in whole clusters to start spontaneous fermentation in stainless steal tanks. The grapes are slowly crushed by hand over two weeks to release the fermenting juice and allow for skin contact to take place. The juice is then transferred to a 670l Nomblot concrete egg where the wine matures for 12 months.
Only 900 bottles are made.
Saline and mineral with fruit driven flavours of citrus, apricot and a waxy texture.
