With shades of lemon and straw in the glass and and earthly character of wet stone, hints of ripe citrus
and spice on the nose. Vibrant and concentrated with intense yet restrained fruit balanced by taut
acidity and notable length.

DaschBosch crafts elegant and experimental wines whilst upholding traditional methods of wine-making and craftsmanship. Their wines reflect the vastness of the South African landscape and reflect the decades of vines growing in one place.

100% Chenin Blanc from 58 year old bush vine in Breedekloof on the eastern border of Paarl, these
vines are grown on Mossiesdrift farm which is registered as part of South Africa's Old Vine Project.

Between 4-5 tonnes of grapes were hand picked in the middle of March. The grapes were de-stemmed
and crushed. Cold soaking and slow fermentation at 15-22C are both used to enhance flavours and colour. The wine
was fermented in 3rd & 4th fill barrels for about 3 weeks with commercial as well as wild yeast then
left on the thick lees for 6 months and barrel-matured for 8 months.

Perfect with creamy chicken and seafood dishes.
