Kaapzicht Kliprug Chenin Blanc 2018

Kaapzicht Kliprug Chenin Blanc 2018
Kaapzicht Kliprug Chenin Blanc 2018
Wonderful sun-ripe yellow fruit with crunchy apple, fresh pineapple and a lick of oak. The palate is medium bodied and fresh, but with fleshy texture and good weight. A rich fruited core of fruit on the mid-palate builds to a crisp, dry finish.

Cellar Grapes are picked by hand and then whole bunch pressed without the use of Sulphur. The juice is left 1 day to settle before racking it to barrels and leaving it to naturally ferment until dry. The wine is stirred once a month and kept in the 300/400 and 500L barrels for almost a year before sulphuring up and bottling it. The RS is natural sugar which did not ferment dry.
