False Bay ‘Slow’ Chenin Blanc 2022

South Africa / Coastal Region

Andy's Tasting Notes

A well-rounded and smooth Chenin Blanc with hints of lemon curd, oregano and wild honey.  Clean, light yet tasty!

Producer notes – production:  The grapes for False Bay Slow Chenin Blanc stem from old bush vines in the coastal region. Old vines are key to making stand-out chenin and although The Swartland is not as coastal as most of the vineyards used for the False Bay wines, it is an area where, quite frankly, grapes from old vines are available at the required prices. Thankfully, the area’s old vines produce naturally low yields and retain good acidity despite being warmer and less windswept than Stellenbosch, so cooler, coastal Atlantic winds are less of a necessity for these gnarly old vines. Made by Waterkloof’s talented young Cellarmaster Nadia Barnard. Chenin crafted the wild way – old vine fruit, fermented with wild yeast found naturally on the grapes. Up to six months lees ageing after fermentation gives a slow and natural evolution and a harmonious and balanced wine.
