David & Nadia Skaliekop Chenin Blanc 2021

David & Nadia is a family owned Swartland driven project and we focus on a spectrum of organic, old and dry land bush vine vineyards from different areas with different soil types throughout the Swartland, farmed by like-minded people. We are members of the Swartland Independent Producers. In the vineyard we aim for biological farming and in the cellar we work as natural as possible. It is all about the soil and vineyards after all.

Vineyards

These vines were planted in 1985 in very shallow shale soils in the Paardeberg, being an anomaly as the mountain is granite driven. These soils prove why our region is known for wheat farms as it remains a difficult soil for vineyards in a warm region, dryland farm context. A small tractor road divides the Plat’bos and Skaliekop vineyards.

The wines of the different pickings were aged separately, before blending and then bottling at the end of the year. This wine qualifies for the Certified Heritage Vineyards (CHV) seal and forms part of the Old Vine Project (OVP).

Winemaking and Maturation

Harvesting took place over three picking dates and all lots were fermented and aged separately. Skaliekop was harvested mid/end February over three picking dates.

Tasting Notes

We believe in a pure, fresh and natural style where site and soil are at work with minimal influence from a winemaking point of view.
