Fairview Paarl Chenin Blanc

Fairview Paarl Chenin Blanc

R100.00

While our Darling Chenin may be lively, our Paarl Chenin is more honest, expressing the typical character of the variety. Charming and fragrant, this substantive white shares snatches of gentle citrus and tropical fruit notes with a fresh rounded palate.

Wine Info
Description

The grapes were picked by hand very early in the morning, which allowed for the grapes to be delivered cold to the cellar, where they were destalked and gently pressed.  The free-run juice settled for two days before the clear juice was racked off for fermentation. 30% of the wine was fermented in French oak barrels (5% new oak) and the rest was cold fermented in a stainless steel tank.  On completion of fermentation, the wine was left on fine lees before blending the components and bottling.
