Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2016 Chip Off The Old Block is intended to be a lighter, fresher version of our Old Vines Chenin. The colour is pale straw to light gold and has an interesting nose made up of tropical fruits (guava and papaya) in addition to flavours of quince, golden delicious apples and white peaches. These aromas carry nicely onto the medium-bodied palate where they are joined by beautiful notes of white flowers and citrus. The overall impression is of a wine that is fresh, pure and delicate, with nice fruit intensity, beautiful balance, and layers of complexity.
Vineyard Notes
The 2016 growing season was long, dry and warm, much like the previous 3 vintages. The grapes for this wine were sourced from a vineyard planted from cuttings taken from our Old Vines Chenin Blanc Vineyard, a stone’s throw away. During harvest the grapes were sampled bi-weekly to measure flavour development and sugar content, and they were picked at the optimum point of flavour for the intended fresh and fruity style of wine that we were targeting.
Production Notes
The grapes for the 2016 Chip Off The Old Block were picked on September 30th, 2016. They were carefully hand-sorted and gently whole-bunch pressed, before 24 hours of cold settling. Fermentation took place in a stainless steel tank at a cooler temperature to keep the wine bright and fruit forward. The wine was made of 100% Chenin Blanc and was bottled in March, 2017.
Winemaker Notes
100% Chenin Blanc
Food Pairing Notes

We purchased this wine to be one of our "daily drinkers" ie. relaxing at the end of the day. For all the reasons listed in the Tasting Notes, we have come to really enjoy it.
