We share our wine making equipment with Leeuwenkuil Family vineyards in their artisanal cellar on Koopmanskloof farm in Stellenbosch. Through this relationship we have access to a some of the best vineyards in Paarl and Swartland. These Chenin Blanc grapes are from vines which are over 30 years old. Our friend Jenny Metelerkamp who lived with us at Lloyd’s camp, Botswana produced the fine Painted Wolf ink drawing for our logo and the pack labels.
An elegant wine, with an aroma of peach cobbler, lime and vanilla. The wine has a creamy finessed texture with a long finish with bright acid keeping it fresh and vibrant. 4300 bottles produced. This wine will develop in bottle over the coming 3-4 years, gaining complexity as it develops in bottle. Fermentation was very slow in oak barrels using natural yeast.
