Honeybunch Reserve Chenin Blanc 2020

R270.00

Only the exposed bunches on the morning sun side of our 35 year old Chenin Blanc vineyard are selected for this wine, they turn gold in colour as a result of their exposure giving the wine a unique honeyed character. This wine is fermented with the wild/indigenous yeasts in older French oak barrels giving it an incredible complexity showing rich, honeyed fruit with a bright acidity leading into a delicious savoury finish.
