Notes

David & Nadia is a family owned Swartland driven project and they focus on a spectrum of organic, old and dry land bush vine vineyards from different areas with different soil types throughout the Swartland, farmed by like-minded people. They are members of the Swartland Independent Producers.

In the vineyard they aim for biological farming and in the cellar we work as natural as possible. It is all about the soil and vineyards after all. They believe in a pure, fresh and natural style where site and soil are at work with minimal influence from a winemaking point of view.

Tasting notes:
'From seven vineyards, date of planting ranging from 1962 to 1982 on various soils but predominantly granite. Pear and peach plus a little earthiness on the nose. The palate is dense and textured – a great core of fruit, punchy acidity and a grippy finish.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 93/100

Winemakers notes:
Our main Chenin blanc from the Swartland focusses yet again on various Old Vine Vineyards, ranging plantings from 1962 till 1982 and based on granite from the Paardeberg, blended with schale/schist from the east, clay from the north and iron from the western parts of the Swartland. Dry-land farmed bush vines stood the test of time and it showcases the ultimate reason why Chenin blanc is our main focus in the Swartland.

In total the wine is made from 7 vineyards, more than 10 pickings, different soils, different aspects, different vineyard ages, farmed by different people and different farmers. This wine illustrates the Swartland, its people and its old vineyards. Whole bunch pressed and naturally fermented, matured for 11 months in old neutral French oak barrels. The wine has a Certified Heritage Vineyards (CHV) seal and forms part of the Old Vine Project (OVP).

Alcohol: 13.5%
