Description

Being a family business you make wines for each other. My wife loves Chenin blanc, so I decided to make her one. These dry-land bush vines planted in 1985 and grown in Darling are an epitome of old South African bush vine Chenin blanc. Wines are fermented naturally in seasoned barrels and aged sur lie for 9 months. Ripe pear and spice, balanced of by a beautiful minerality, has you thinking of the start of a Quentin Tarantino movie!
