2007 Chenin Blanc "Yolanda"

Production
The grapes are harvested by hand at optimum ripeness as determined by the sugar/acid ratio, then de-stemmed, crushed and cooled. The free run juices from the static drainers are fermented separately at 13°C from the juice. Different tanks are blended to obtain the optimum bouquet and pallet.

Soil / Viticulture practices
The cultivar is grown on a variety of soil types in the Malmesbury region, but mainly shale and
oakleaf.

Climate
The Swartland falls within the coastal winter rainfall area. Warm summers, moderated by cool Atlantic breezes. Annual rainfall: 400mm.

Tasting
Typical tropical guava flavours supported by passion fruit and underlying citrus blossoms flavours. The wine is full and rich on palate, with a crisp finish.
