Rickety Bridge Noble Late Harvest
Grapes selected and harvested from 43-year-old Chenin Blanc vineyards, planted on Alluvial soils alongside the Franschhoek River. Very low yielding vineyards produce these concentrated bunches.
Rich and ripe with apricot, peach skins with hints of mango and litchi on the nose. The wine shows honeyed aromas with white peach and a full, rich palate of tropical fruit.
Enjoyed as an aperitif or as a dessert wine with a selection of cheeses or desserts.
Harvesting & Fermentation:
Grapes were picked at 36˚ Balling to give the wine its natural sweetness and full body. All grapes used to make this wine were harvested by hand in the early hours of the morning.
The fermentation process lasted 27 days at 14˚C in the 225L 2nd, 3rd and 4th fill barrels. This wine was further fermented and aged for fourteen months in small French oak barrels.
Ready for your enjoyment or can be aged up to 2021.
