Land of Hope – Reserve Chenin Blanc 2015
4-Star Chenin from bush vines on the ocean-facing slopes of the Helderberg.
Rooted in wonderful granite soils, this Chenin Blanc is made from predominantly old bush vines on the ocean-facing slopes of the Helderberg in Stellenbosch. Picked and sorted by hand, the free run juice was fermented then matured on the lees in small Burgundian barrels for 8 months (only 20% new). Chenin Blanc is South Africa’s most versatile premium white grape, with unique quality found in this site. In essence this Chenin Blanc has immense personality and flavour and will mature for a further 3 years.
