Cape Winemakers Guild

Rijk’s CWG Chenin Blanc 2011

The grapes were hand picked at night. 100% barrel fermented and matured for 15 months in a second fill French oak barrel. This wine was fermented with a slow fermenting yeast strain to produce a certain amount of ‘volume’. No malolactic fermentation took place. Tasting Notes: Attractive stone-fruit aromas dominate the nose with hints of quince and pine nut. A rich, creamy palate is well balanced and freshened up by the presence of a lively acidity. This wine is full bodied and has a long finish.

Winemaker: Pierre Wahl
