Protea Chenin Blanc 2022

Protea Chenin Blanc 2022

Appealing stonefruit aromas with a gentle lemon zest edge. The palate is appropriately fruity – with more nectarine, apricot, quince, and touch
of ripe honeyed sweetness to balance the vibrant, fresh acidity. Succulent and refreshing with a tasty citrus pith note that lends texture. Long finish.

in the vineyard : Each vineyard was harvested separately by hand in the cool early morning hours to capture the fresh flavours. The fruit was both de-stemmed
and whole-bunch pressed before overnight settling. The individual parcels were fermented separately by a selection of cultured yeast strains in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, the wine was allowed to spend time on the lees in order to build a full, well rounded palate before being blended and bottled.
