Thistle & Weed Brandnetel Chenin Blanc 2018


Thistle & Weed is the collaboration of two winemakers, Etienne Terblanche and Stephanie Wiid. Grapes were sourced from a vineyard located on the foothills of the Simonsberg Mountain in Stellenbosch. The grapes were delicately whole-bunch pressed and naturally fermented. Only the free run juice was fermented in third – fill French oak barrels. The lees was stirred (battonage) for the first month, after which the wine was allowed to mature on the lees for 11 months prior to bottling.
