Technical/Winemaking Notes:

Varietal Composition: 100% Chenin Blanc
Harvest: Hand picked on 5 May 2017. Significant botrytis infection was attained after allowing the fruit to hang on the vine for two weeks after the last of the other varieties were harvested.
Fermentation/Oak: The fruit was destemmed into an open fermenter and left to ferment naturally on skins for 3 days. It was then basket pressed directly into two seasoned French barriques. The wine remained in barrel on lees for 5 months then racked, blended and bottled.
Bottling Date: 28 July 2017
Alcohol: 14.0%
Production: 88 dozen 375mL

Tasting Notes:

This dessert wine has a lovely luscious nose of lifted pineapple and freshly picked apricots, with hints of botrytis. The palate is rich and textural with intensity to the flavours of sweet citrus and honey, but still bright with a refreshing and balanced natural acidity to finish.
