De Trafford Keerweder Chenin Blanc 1999

Vineyard Blocks

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.

 

Vintage Conditions

 

 

Production

 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.
