  • Marras Piekenierskloof Chenin Blanc 2017

Grapes were ripened by bush vines on the Piekenierskloof mountain at an elevation of 800 meters above sea level. The fruit is picked at the coolest times of the early morning during foggy conditions then cooled overnight. The grapes are harvested and pressed in whole clusters, then fermented cold with native yeast coming off the vineyard itself. Combination of barrel and tank fermentation. Matured on fine lees for 6 months.
