Cape Winemakers Guild

Kaapzicht CWG 1947 Chenin Blanc 2013

The grapes were hand-picked, whole bunch pressed, settled overnight and underwent natural fermentation in French and Hungarian oak barrels. The wine spent one year in different barrels (500 litre, 300 litre and 225 litre), ranging from new to third fill, and then a barrel selection was made to produce the final blend.
