tomato salads, whole grilled white fi sh or to cut through dishes with creamy sauces.

Blend: 60% Chenin Blanc, 40% Colombard

Alcohol: 13%

Vineyard: The Chenin Blanc grapes come from vines aged between 20-44 years

producing low yields that bring out rich fl avours of peach, pineapple and passion

fruit. The younger Colombard vines are 9 years old giving lighter fl avours of guava

and melon.

Winemaking Note: Grapes were harvested in the early morning to keep them cool.

At the winery they were gently pressed with the juice allowed to settle overnight

before a cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks, averaging 16°C.
