This wine is unfined and unfiltered, spending 11 months on the lees which gives a clean, fresh bite to the palate. Citrus, pear and apple combine and lead to a mouth-watering succulent finish.
David employs fruit from six different sources, including his new base at Paardebosch, to make this Chenin. Typically focused and expressive, it's a combination of leesy breadth and tangy minerality, with stony acidity and very subtle oak. Essence of Swartland Chenin. Drink: 2015-20
