Kleinkloof Chenin Blanc has a very attractive nose, with lots of tropical fruits such as pineapple, guava and citrus fruit - carrying on to the crisp, refreshing palate.
The grapes for this wine are grown on the flatter parts of the farm that is located in Klein Simonsvlei, Paarl. The vines are planted in dry land and may receive one supplementary irrigation prior to harvest in mid to late January. After crushing, the must was in contact with the grape skins for four hours before fermentation started at 15°C, taking three weeks to complete. The juice was kept on the lees, with stirring taking place every two days. No malolactic fermentation occurred and there was no use of oak at any stage.
