AA Badenhorst Golden Slopes Chenin Blanc 2021


Product Notes

The Golden Slopes is named after the deep yellow coloured granite rocks found in this vineyard (planted in 1966). The soils are of course granite with a 15% clay component. The results in grapes that ripen slightly later than the vineyards on the farm and the wine always has plenty of texture and tension on the palate; wonderfully balanced acidity and length too. The aromas are dominated by yellow fruits, quince and spicy notes.

Grapes: Chenin Blanc 100%

Vinification: The vinification is quite straight forward when you are working with fantastic grapes from old vineyards. The total vineyard yields around 2 tons/ha. The grapes are pressed and run off into older casks for fermentation and ageing.  Maturation: We only use old 1200L foudres for the fermentation and maturation of 15 months. After this the wine is are racked and bottled.
