Current stock: 7

The Den Series Chenin Blanc, Painted Wolf Wines, Swartland, South Africa 2017    

Grape variety 100% Chenin Blanc  

This wine has a fruity aroma and flavours of tropical fruit, sweet melon, pear, peaches and pineapple with an underlying savoury minerality. The wine has a great texture and a long, layered finish with bright acidity keeping it fresh and vibrant. 

Delicious on its own, the wine has tons of flavours and poise and is a versatile partner for many different dishes.  

This Chenin Blanc is harvested from a number of blocks on farms in the Swartland region, both irrigated and dry farmed vines of various ages between 10 and 30 years old. 

Wine producer's notes, 2017 was the third dry vintage on the trot it was, however, quite cool coming into the harvest period. We adapted the vintage by making two separate batches of wine, the first from early picked fruit, and the second a riper portion fermented with French oak staves. We opted for simple cold fermentation with a few months of lees contact. The oak component makes up around 50% of the total blend, the two components had different flavours and textures from which we have endeavoured to produce a well- balanced, interesting wine which is a joy to drink.
