Clean and pure, a nice concentration with appetizing acidity - old-vine Swartland Chenin made naturally and matured in the egg with some skin contact and carbonic maceration After one year in the egg, it spends six months in old oak to settle down. This produces a textured, honest Chenin unlike any other - small production below 1000 bottles
