Naude Family Wines White Blend 2010
Winemaking and Maturation
This wine was made with minimal interference, no additions barring some sulphites, and has the potential to age for 30+ years.
The 2010 vintage was less expressive than 2009, and therefore the three components were used in more equal parts than in any of the previous vintages.
Plenty of wet stone minerality, fresh citrus and tropical fruit flavours. Hints of spice for the oak aging. Long, lingering creamy peach finish. This wine perfectly demonstrates the intention to create a true South African style, instead of copying styles across the world, carefully aimed at creating something unlike any other available styles world wide.
The wine shows tropical fruit intensity from Chenin Blanc and ends in a lingering citrus finish, contributed by the Sauvignon Blanc, while the Semillon provides structure to complete the blend.
Composition: 39% Chenin Blanc | 31% Semillon | 30% Sauvignon Blanc
