Miles Mossop Wines Saskia-Jo 2014

This is a blend of 85% Chenin Blanc and 15% Clairette Blanche. The Chenin Blanc grapes are from a single old bush vine vineyard from the northern part of the Paardeberg in the Swartland, growing in sandy soils of granite origin. The Chenin Blanc was picked at around 24°B. The Clairette Blanche is from a similar site and was picked at a very low sugar (19.5°B) to preserve the acidity that is inherently low in this variety. The grapes were whole bunch pressed. The juice was then run to 400 litre barrels after minimal settling and the fermentation was allowed to start naturally. After fermentation, the wine was topped and matured ‘sur lie’ for 10 months in French oak, with regular lees stirring. Only 2nd and 5th fill barrels were used.
