in the vineyard : This Bush Vine Chenin Blanc was made from Single Block selected grapes from the farm Sonop, Stellenbosch. The vines, with rootstock Richter 99, were planted in 1982 by Francois du Bois. The soil type, which is derived mainly from granite, is reddish to yellow in colour, acidic with good physical and water-retention properties; mainly Oakleaf, Tukulu and Clovelly soil types.

in the cellar : Phenolic ripe grapes were harvested, cold soaked for 6 hours on the skins. Using only the free run juice, fermentation was initiated in stainless steel tanks and halfway through fermentation transferred to new French and American oak barrels, where it finished its primary fermentation. Matured further for another 12 months in the barrels.
Bottled in May 2018 and released September 2018.
