Veritas 2002 - Silver
This wine is the pure essence of Chenin Blanc fruit. Unwooded, its blast of flavour fills the mouth, and lingers for a good while. Good natural acidity maintains balance with the stunningly concentrated fruit.

About The Harvest
Grapes were harvested at 23º Balling. All fruit was handpicked into baskets. Grapes were cooled down to 5ºCelsius in a cooling container overnight.
In The Cellar
The grapes were then sorted on the sorting table and thereafter destemmed. After destemming skin contact was allowed for 5 hours. The press and free run juice were separated and after settling pumped over into tanks where it was inoculated with different yeast strains. After fermentation it was left on the gross lees for 4 weeks. The wine was then fined, filtered and bottled.
