Fairview Chenin Blanc 2022

The grapes were handpicked very early in the morning and delivered cold to the cellar. Once in the cellar, the grapes were destalked and gently pressed. The free-run juice was settled for two days before the clear juice was racked off and cold fermented in tank. On completion of fermentation, the wine was left on the fine lees before bottling.

Description

Produced from a combination of grapes from two distinct vineyard sites, a bush vine vineyard in Darling and trellised vineyards in Paarl. The Darling vineyard is approximately 300m above sea level on the west-facing hills outside Darling, planted in 2001 and is dryland farmed. The soil in this vineyard is decomposed granite, which differentiates it from the surrounding vineyards, which are composed mainly of clayheavy oakleaf soils. The Paarl vineyards are also planted in decomposed granite soils and are drip irrigated. Both sites deliver great expressions of this variety.
