Teddy Hall Wines Hendrik Biebouw Auction Reserve Chenin Blanc 2011

Early morning picking and berry selection – using only the free run juice. The juice was settled overnight in stainless steel. The clear juice with fluffy lees was racked off first thing the next morning, directly into French oak barriques -and left to start fermenting on its own. No commercial yeasts were used. After fermentation, the barriques were tightly sealed until just a few days before bottling. The oak was 50% new and 50% second fill. Bottling was on 22nd March after 12 months in oak. Tasting Notes: Bright gold with green tinge, tropical fruit, pineapple and a hint of vanilla on the nose. Quince, grapefruit and baked apple flavours follow on the palate. Underlining the wine?s pedigree is an intense finish which lingers long after the mouthful has been swallowed.
