David & Nadia Plat’bos Chenin Blanc 2020
David & Nadia is a family-owned Swartland-driven project. They focus on a spectrum of organic, old and dry land bush vine vineyards from different areas with different soil types throughout the Swartland.
The Plat’bos Chenin blanc, planted right next to the Skaliekop vineyard in decomposed granite. Planted in 1981 on the Paardebosch farm, this vineyard contributes to both our main Chenin blanc as well as Aristargos and it will continue to do so.
We have been farming this vineyard since winter 2013. It has been a pillar in our granite approach towards our white wines. Grapes were harvested in the first part of February, being one of the earliest Chenin blanc vineyards we work with, planted on a northern slope.
Winemaking and Maturation
Harvesting took place over three picking dates and all lots were fermented and aged separately. Plat’bos is also part of the Old Vine Project (OVP).
We believe in a pure, fresh and natural style. Site and soil at work with minimal influence from a winemaking point of view.
