The Chenin Blanc wines were made from old bush vines. The grapes were handpicked, crushed and pressed, the juice settled, yeast added and fermented in two old 225L barrels. After the completion of alcoholic fermentation one barrel underwent malolactic fermentation, a process where malic acid is transformed into lactic acid by the addition of lactic acid bacteria (TWEE GISTINGS), while the other one did not (EEN GISTING). The two barrels were then aged separately on the lees for about 10 months and bottled separately.  The EEN GISTING wine has prominent pineapple and white flower flavours, with a higher acidity, minerality and linear mouthfeel. The TWEE GISTINGS has more buttery, creamy flavours, with a fuller mouthfeel and lower acidity, which is due to the malolactic fermentation. Now you can taste the effect malolactic fermentation has on a wine…

    Just tasted your wines. Excellent, especially the Cabernet Sauvignon. Although not like a french CabSav, this is superb – rounded, not too sweet, dark and mouthful. The Chenin is also different from SA’s Chenins – subtly light but very tasty and not the usual heavy sweetness of peach. When can we order more?
