Cape Winemakers Guild

Rijk’s Private Cellar Auction Reserve Chenin blanc 2009

Grapes were hand-picked at night. 100% barrel fermented and matured for 12 months in 50% new and 50% 2nd fill French oak. 20% of this wine was fermented with wild yeast. No malolactic fermentation took place. Tasting note: Goldish colour. Complex yellow fruit nose with hints of quince and pine nut. These aromas are well supported by a nutty presence which originates from the use of quality oak. This wine has a full bodied palate with a lasting aftertaste.

Winemaker: Pierre Wahl
