This is the wine that put Tierhoek on the map – an elegant Chenin overflowing with expression and flavour. Fermenting and ageing in French oak for 6 months add fullness and complexity to this mouth-watering wine, while the minerality and stone-fruit acidity provide a long lasting after-taste. This wine will age for 4 to 5 years.
These 44 year old Chenin Blanc vines are all rooted on weathered sandstone. They are trellised on an east-facing “skuinskap” system, so the bunches are only exposed to the late morning sun. Irrigation is only done during drought conditions, and all farming methods are organic. Yields are 3tonne per hectare.
