Carinus ‘Rooidraai’ Chenin Blanc 2018


Carinus wines are tiny production out of Stellenbosch run by Danie and Hugo Carinus, both more predominately involved in the business of farming grapes and other produce. The wines are made by winemaker Lukas Van Loggerenberg who’s established himself with his own eponymous label.

Harvest involved four pickings, each at different levels of ripeness, providing the building blocks to achieve maximum complexity. Fermentation occurred spontaneously and maturation lasted 10 months in old oak.
