    From the only bush vines on the farm, a bright, full style with its everpresent tropical fruit and green apple flavours. A very good length and body for this vintage and, as it's bottled under screwcap for the first time, will preserve its freshness and verve for a good few years to come. Excellent value for money.

    Vines planted: 1982
    Soil: Clovelly
    Irrigation: None
    Trellishing: Bushvines
    Elevation: 200 m

    A cooler ripening season led to a later harvest of these bush vine grapes.
    Yield: 5t/ha
    Balling Harvested: 21

    The cooler conditions helped maintain freshness with a lower sugar level and resultant lower alcohol. The juice underwent cold fermentation for 12 days and was left on the gross lees for 2 months before bottling.

    100% Chenin Blanc
