Notes

Tasting notes:
'100% Chenin from two vineyards, picked at 22 Balling, then put in the shade of some trees. Takes a few weeks to dry out, which is judged visually. ‘It takes 2 days to press, and it drips out like honey,’ says Andrea, who says that it needs two bars for two days. ‘You need to pull phenolics out of it: it’s important to get complexity out as well as sugar,’ she says. It doesn’t go through malolactic at all because of the concentration. 360 g/l sugar, which is very high. Acids 11.5 and alcohol is 8. Powerful and complex with lovely acidity: very lively with some marmalade and apricot, as well as sweet raisins and lemons. Some orange peel, too. This has amazing complexity with great acidity and spicy structure. This takes between 8 and 10 months to finish fermenting. Super complex and viscous and very fresh indeed.' – Jaime Goode, Wine Anorak 97/100
