Variety:
100% Chenin Blanc

Wine of Origin:
Swartland

Vineyard Details:
The grapes come from two 42+ year old parcels of sustainably and dry farmed bush vines planted in the decomposed Granite soils of the Paardeberg. These very deep decomposed Granite soils tend to produce wines with great acidity and a flinty, stony aromatic profile.

Maturation:
11 months in 3rd and 4th fill French oak barrels.

Tasting Note:
The 2019 growing season was again very dry and yields were well below normal, resulting in wines with incredible texture, depth and concentration.  The Granite soils retain some moisture deep down, and the vines use this to retain a freshness to balance the texture.  The palate of the GRANITE Chenin is always tight, long, and flinty with notes of citrus blossom, quince, fynbos and fennel.  Ageing potential 10-20 years, this wine will show optimally if decanted when drunk within the first 3 years after bottling.

Technical Details at Bottling:
Alcohol 13% – RS 2.1 g/l – TA 7.2 g/l – pH 3.36
