HOGAN CHENIN BLANC

These mighty fine Chenin blanc grapes were handpicked in mid-February from 38 year old, south-east facing bush vines, planted on decomposed granite from Joubertskloof in Swartland delivering only 2 tons/ha. The grapes were then cooled overnight to 8 degrees celcius and hand-sorted the next day followed by a gentle whole bunch press. No sulphur or any other additions were made to the must at pressing. Natural fermentation took place in 225L French oak barrels followed by natural malolactic fermentation. The nose is complex showing aromas of pear, limey citrus and honeysuckle before white peach through spice, and some yeasty complexity.

The palate is medium bodied with pure fruit and fresh acidity. The wine has a very harmonious combination of stone fruits, quince and honey with a pleasing saline undertone. A wine with wonderful depth and subtleties.
