Johan Joubert Wines Granite Selection Chenin Blanc 2016

This “two barrel selection” wine was crafted from a small portion of saprolite granite
soil from the Helderberg mountain range. The grapes were from a 35-year-old bush vine
vineyard block. The grapes were reductively crushed and given a 24 hour extended skin
contact period, before settling. Halfway through cold-fermentation, at 12° balling, the
wine was racked into Seguin Moreau Icon Burgundy barrels and spent, with fermentation,
16 months on the lees before bottling.
