Grapes were harvested by hand, whole bunch pressed and naturally fermented in old French oak Barrels. The wine was left on the lees for 9 months, with regular battonage to extract body from the lees contact. Finally, the wine was racked out of barrel and bottled in November 2019.
Light straw colour with a golden edge. Rich aromas of honey, quince and fynbos are balanced with elegant oak notes. Yellow fruit layered with acidity and a salty finish creates a lengthy palate.
Total Production: 450 bottles
The area in and around the Piekenierskloof has become increasingly popular with the star-gazers as the clear night sky reveals an unseen plethora of stars and constellations not visible from nearly towns or cities. One such place is Maankloof, home to this very special block of certified Old Vines Chenin Blanc Planted in 1973.
