Scions of Sinai Granietsteen 2017
This is a saline driven style of Chenin. Medium-Full bodied. Focus on purity of the citrus fruit together with a dry honeysuckle”ness” and good natural acidity. Savoury minerality with long follow.
All grapes are handpicked into small handcarried boxes, early in the morning with break of dawn, and transported to the winery by a Pick-up truck and trailer. The grapes were destemmed and spent 5 days soaking on the skins, before fermentation, infusing terroir and some salinity. Basket pressed, and spontaneous fermentation then took place in old (4th fill) French oak barrels. The fermented wine spent around 9 months on its lees in barrel and from there was hand bottled without fining or filtration. Naturally contains a lower pH level (unique to this site’s terroir).
This wine is perfect with Mediterranean and Eastern dishes.
