Van Loggerenberg Trust Your Gut Chenin Blanc 2020
The grapes for this wine are sourced from 2 parcels from different regions. The biggest portion, 60%, of the wine is sourced from a block in the Paardeberg (Swartland) and 40% from the Polkadraai hills of Stellenbosch .The Paardeberg portion is from bush vine grapes planted on decomposed granite giving the wine its elegance, finesse and focus. The portion from the Polkadraai is planted on Granite and lends characteristics of yellow fruit and depth to the wine.
Winemaking and Maturation
The parcels are vinified separately before being blended together just before bottling. Grapes are whole bunch pressed and left overnight to settle in stainless steel tanks. The wine is the racked to 3rd fill 500 litre French oak the next morning. The wine spent 10 months on its primary lees without any batonage. No commercial yeast or enzymes were used during the winemaking process.
Possessing remarkable tautness and minerality, it’s a Loire Valley-like blend of fruit from the Paardeberg and Polkadraai Hills with bone-dry flavours of greengage, white pepper and beeswax and a stony, mouth-watering finish
