De Trafford Keerweder Chenin Blanc 1998
Unusual care has been taken to produce something special from our local workhorse variety. This is a single vineyard wine produced for our neighbours. An exceptional vineyard block has been chosen with a cool microclimate, deep moisture retentive soil and 25 year old vines with a low 7 - 10 ton / hectare yield.
The wine was 100 % barrel fermented in mostly used (30 % new American ) French oak barrels and left on the lees for 7 months to add a creamy richness to the ripe fruit. Bottled on the property with only a light fining and no filtration or cold stabilization.
Alc. 14.79 Sugar 2.0 TA 7.0 VA 0.44 pH 3.45 SO2 23 - 98
