Orpheus and the Raven Chenin Blanc 2018


The vines are located in the Durbanville wine valley in the  Cape Town wine region. The grapes were hand-picked on the 8th of March 2018 in the cool morning hours at 22.5o degrees Balling and sorted, de-stemmed, crushed, pressed and allowed to cold settle over two days. The juice was pumped to 12 barrels and fermented in a temperature-controlled facility at 16 degrees Celsius ambient temperature. The only exception was the original Vinoneers 500 litre French oak barrel which fermented under the winemaker’s watchful eye outside his office! The wine underwent spontaneous malolactic fermentation in barrel, after which it was left on the lees without sulphur addition for 6 months. The wine was matured for a total of 12 months in French oak.
