'A combination of natural and commercial yeasts were used for fermentation and the wine was matured in old oak for seven months. The nose shows pear, white peach, a hint of lemon plus some yeasty complexity while the palate is light bodied with bright acidity and a savoury finish. This has both a delicacy and a certain piquancy that makes it very more-ish.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 90/100

'The Monday's Child Chenin Blanc 2019 shows perfumed, fresh quince, tangy citrus and a savoury finish. We hope you enjoy dinking it as much as we do.

This Chenin blanc is produced from 31 year old dryland vines grown in the Polkadraai region in Stellenbosch. This particular sight enjoys cooling sea breezes during those hot Stellenbosch afternoons. We picked these grapes around 21 Brix to retain a freshness in the wine. After whole-bunch pressing the juice was racked to old puncheon barrels where a combination of natural and commercial yeasts were used for fermentation. Having spent 7 months on gross lees, we bottled without fining or filtration, yielding a total of 1247 bottles.' – Alexandra McFarlane, Winemaker
