Rietvallei Estate Chenin Blanc 2020

This is a dry, but fruity Chenin Blanc with intense aromas of dried apple, fresh citrus, and a touch of oak spice. The palate is rich and creamy with a firm but balanced acidity, complemented by a smooth,lingering aftertaste.

Pair with any seafood or poultry dishes. Great with grilled fish!! Serve chilled (7-10ºC).

in the vineyard : The vines, planted in 2015, thrive in deep red Karoo soils. They are trellised and under micro-irrigation.

about the harvest: The grapes are harvested at night at optimum ripeness of approximately 22.5 ºBalling (Brix).

in the cellar :  In the cellar, only the free-run juice is selected and allowed to cold-settle for three days. The clean juice is then racked and taken to second and third-fill 300-liter French oak barrels for fermentation. After fermentation, the wine is left on the primary fermentation lees for up to six months, stirred once a week during the first couple of months, and then left to mature and settle naturally for the remaining period. Finally, the wine is racked,fined, and stabilized before bottling.
