The sunshine of Chenin Blanc meets the vibrancy of Moscato in a bright and beautiful wine with a lovely perfume and flirty touch of sweetness. Grapes are from the small and sunny wine growing area of Voor Paardeberg, just outside Paarl. The Chenin Blanc was picked at 21 and the Muscat at 20 degrees Balling to ensure lower alcohol.The two varieties are vinified separately, then blended and bottled prior to release. Cultivars are picked earlier to get lower alcohol. A small percentage of the wine’s alcohol is also removed and then blended back to get a good balance between fresh acidity and fruitiness.
