De Trafford Keerweder Chenin Blanc 1999
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. 14.7349 Sugar 2.3 TA 7.1 VA 0.40 pH 3.46 SO2 21 - 105
