Hoopenburg Chenin Blanc 2020
The wine displays a light honey colour, depicting rays of sunshine. Nuances of passion fruit blossoms makes for a grand entrance, followed by notes of kiwi and green lemon. This youthful freshness is complimented by the balanced acidity. The nose of the wine is pure fruit flavours with a refreshing finish.
The origin of these grapes stems from the Stellenbosch region. Harvesting took place by hand at 22.5°balling in the cool of the morning. Without crushing or de-stemming, three hour long pressing took place, followed by fermentation for three weeks in stainless steel tanks. The wine was racked and allowed to age for a few months on the fine lees, where after light filtration preceded bottling.
