**ONLY SHIPPED TO EUROPE AND THE UK**
(Of the day, Radiant, Sylvan)
The sky turns gold
Venus hangs her head for slumber
While birds sing amongst the ripe
An excellent 2021 barrel fermented Chenin Blanc
Winemaker: Natalie Kühne
The grapes are harvested by hand and delivered in crates. After the grapes are destemmed, skin contact is given for 3 hours before the juice is extracted. Only free run juice is used and great care is taken that the juice is clear before fermentation starts, to ensure that the pure concentrated fruitiness of the dry land grapes is infused into the wine. For the Barrel Fermented Chenin Blanc, fermentation takes place in 500L barrels with selected wine yeast. French Oak barrels are used to lend complexity to the wine, which has a good rest for 10 months in the barrels. Made in a rich and ripe, wooded style, together with the age-old tradition of Dry Land viticulture, it resulted in a very aromatic and richly textured wine, with characteristics typical to Chenin Blanc grown under these conditions. 400 bottles of this vintage were bottle aged for another year before labeling and release for this LJvV launch.
Citrus, pear, peach and pineapple notes are only some of the aromas. The palate boasts hints of citrus, litchi and vanilla, while the finish is crisp with a well-defined acidity.
