Hot, warm conditions compared to previous vintages saw harvest commence in early January. This resulted in optimum fruit ripeness of excellent quality from well-managed blocks in the Swan Valley.

Swan Valley

100% Chenin Blanc

Alcohol: 12.9%
pH: 3.33
Titratable Acidity: 7

Premium fruit parcels from our 1930 and 1963 blocks were carefully selected and handpicked for this wine. It was chilled to 12 degrees overnight, before being whole-bunch pressed to stainless tanks where it then spent 3 hours to settle in tank. The wine was transferred to 40% new French oak and 60% old French oak to continue its wild ferment. It then spent 7 months maturing in barrel on lees.

This wine is an appealing pale straw with green hues in color. Expect to be greeted with delicious wafts of floral wildflower, green nashi pear and lemon wax, leading into a palate of honey lemon and citrus, finishing with subtle hints of vanilla from the oak influence.

Gained top points from Matthews, who thought it: “A different spin on chenin blanc with new oak vanilla bean notes on the nose. Surprisingly, works quite well on the palate. Glossy green apple, baked pastries and crème fraiche. Nice line and
length, with seamless acidity.” I loved its apple/stone fruit combination, apple-skin texture and length.

Appealed to me with its positive, gooseberry and feijoa aromas. The palate’s round, with flavours turning more to stonefruits. It finishes with subtle sweetness and good ength. Honan noted, “A subtle lick of volatile acidity on the inhale. Saline sweetness on the palate, lemon and passionfruit. Moreishness. Great carry, compels another sip.
