Leeuwenkuil Chenin Blanc
A refined and racy offering with vibrant aromas of green apple and tropical fruit. Its good minerality leads to a wonderfully fresh finish.
Perfect for enjoying right now on the patio.
Makes a fine partner for light fare such as fish, shellfish, white meat and salads, but is equally delightful on its own by the glass.
IN THE VINEYARD
The grapes are sourced from dryland farmed grapes in the prestigious Swartland area. These conditions naturally limit the crop and produce ripe berries with high acidity.
IN THE CELLAR
No oak was used. Fermentation was completed in stainless steel tanks with natural yeasts and the wine was left on the lees for as long as possible before being bottled.
The 2019 vintage was a dry and healthy growing season that followed a winter with good to normal rainfall which allowed the grapes to ripen optimally.
