Spier - Signature Chenin Blanc 2016Fresh & Fruity
Pale gold colour with fresh lime green flashes around the edge.
Tastes of green-apple, ripe white-fleshed nectarine.
Fresh, zippy, ripe fruited, sliced pear, undertow of honey with a lime-squirt ending.
Grapes were hand harvested from selected vineyard blocks that vary from bush vine to trellised vines. Grapes received at the cellar were de-stemmed, slightly crushed before pressing and given brief skin contact.
Free run juice settled in the tanks overnight and the following morning, the clear settled juice, of the individual block selections (some kept separate and some blended) were racked from their lees and inoculated with selected yeast strains.
