Tasting Note

This wine has been made using a centuries old process of drying grapes on straw to concentrate flavour. Fully ripened Chenin Blanc and Crouchen Blanc grapes were hand picked at 23 - 23,5 degrees Balling then laid out on straw to dry for 4 - 5 weeks. This allows the grapes to slowly dehydrate, concentrating the natural sugar and flavour of the grapes. These raisined grapes are then gently pressed @ 39 - 42 degrees Balling and the small quantity of sweet juice obtained is inoculated and fermented in old barrels to produce a luscious sweet wine.
