The Chenin Blanc is one of the grapes of South Africa, planted here since time immemorial. Over the years, recognition for the quality of this grape has also grown in South Africa. One of the most important characteristics is that it can handle the warm climate of the Cape, and therefore always manages to keep its acidity and character. It can produce light-hearted wines, but also wines that have a very powerful character. The grapes for this wine come from vineyards with bush vines as well as modern vineyards with Chenin vines strung on wire. Only the wine from the best vineyard blocks is used for the Signature. This Signature Chenin Blanc is made in a wonderfully fresh and style, with an elegant taste and splashing fruit. The grapes undergo a short contact with the skins upon arrival, to give them more flavor. The wine is fermented in the tank, and also aged in the tank, in order to preserve all the fruit. Moreover, the Chenin Blanc has character enough of itself. It matures for another three months on the yeast cells, which make it extra rich and firm in character. A delicious, smooth and fresh Chenin Blanc is the result.
Delicious aperitif, with spicy crab cakes, baked plaice, pasta dishes or a delicious green chicken salad.
