The very special area that these grapes come from is actually closer to Clanwilliam than to Citrusdal, but the part about the mountain is very true. Situated in deep red sandy soils, on a farm that overlooks the crayfish mecca of Lambertsbay on the one side, and the Olifantsriver and Bulshoek dam on the other side. The tight racy acidity is the standout characteristic of Chenin blanc from this area, combine that with ripeness that adds immense complexity and you know that there is a whole lot of loving here.

Winemaking

Whole bunch pressed and straight to oak barrels without any settling. Fermented in the barrels and left for 10 months without any stirring of the lees. Racked a few weeks before bottling. Filtered once.

Our Expert Food Recommendation

A beautiful wine to go with rich fish and white meat dished. Try honey glazed pork chops in a creamy mustard sauce.
