South Africa White

Stellenbosch 75cl

Lovely new release of this perennial NYW favourite. Sourced from estate vineyards in Stellenbosch with some Swartland fruit grown on decomposed granite, gravel and some clay. The grapes are picked as early as possible and rushed to the cellar where depending on the varietal they are either crushed and destemmed or transferred directly into a tiny manually operated basket press to be process whole bunch. All varietals are fermented wild and matured in a combination of French barrique and 400 litre barrels( 25% new). Full malolactic fermentation takes place and then the juice is blended after 9 months on the fermentation lees without stirring.
A blend of Chenin Blanc, Semillon, Viognier, Grenache Blanc and Verdelho.
Stone and tropical fruits with some mealy yeasty notes and nutty oak on nose and palate. Each sip reveals more and the wine really opens up. Tangy and fresh, lovely limey notes keeping it balance and its long and toasty. Such a complex wine, but also drinkable. Great stuff!
