Silwervis Smiley White NV
“The Smiley NV Chenin Blanc V4 is our fourth release of our multi-vintage Chenin Blend. Wines for this version were selected from four different vintages spanning 2015-2018. The wine is made from fruit sourced from multiple parcels on the granitic Paardeberg terroirs of the Swartland. The wines are all naturally fermented with nothing added. Fermentation takes place in a combination of seasoned oak barrels and stainless steel tank. The wine is matured in a combination of seasoned oak, stainless steel and glass demijohn. Post fermentation the wines are tasted and selected for ageing in a wide variety of different styles inspired by the white wines of the Jura and Jerez. Small batches are selected for under flor yeast ageing and others for Madeira style ageing to create characterful wines for the final blend.” – Silwervis.
