Grapes for our Schist Chenin come from two parcels of Chenin Blanc planted in the stony Shale and Schist based soils of the Kasteelberg, aged 35 and 39 years old. These are the parcels of Chenin that gives the best expression of the Kasteelberg’s terroir – density and structure – but with a decent balance of acidity.
Lemon-straw in colour, this wine has a nose of ripe citrus fruits, cream and cloves. The palate is full and broad with a creamy texture, great structure and a fresh, clove-like finish. Best served at about 12 °C, this wine will show optimally if decanted when drunk within the first 3 years after bottling
