Description

The Winery Of Good Hope Bush Vine Chenin Blanc 2019

Chenin is an extremely versatile grape, able to make excellent wines in many different guises. From Late harvest to Straw wine to classic dry Chenin and even Méthode Champenoise. The Winery of good hope is a wonderfully lively, intense, fruity and beautifully balanced dry Chenin Blanc. Aromas of green apples and white peach invite the juicy, yet taut palate. A depth of fruit is what sets this wine apart. Intense flavour and freshness that lingers on the palate.

This wine makes it a perfect companion on warm days (everyday). On our first sip, we were taken away to a field under a warm summer day. Prancing along an endless rows of summer wild flowers and fresh summer air.

These Chenin Blanc bush vines are situated on the gravelly slopes and extensively decomposed granite soils of the Helderberg where they benefit from the cooling maritime breezes of False Bay. The 2019 harvest season wasn’t as challenging as 2018, due to increased rainfall and minimal frost damage during the winter preceding harvest.

Separate parcels were picked by hand at different levels of ripeness in order to ensure there was a good complexity and balance of acidity, fruit and minerality. Each parcel contributes something different to the whole and this gives us a range of options when considering the blend. Cool fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks with natural yeast (favoring fruit enhancement). The juice was kept on lees for 4 months, with occasional battonnage to enhance palate weight and texture of the wine. The components were blended prior to bottling, whilst still on the lees, to allow total integration of the final wine before preparing for bottling. Minimal fining prior to filtration was maintained throughout. The focus here is on flavour retention and fruit definition, while maintaining the lovely refreshing character for which this wine has become known.
