L.A.S. Vino CBDB 2022 (Organic / Biodynamic) Chenin Blanc
A certified organic and biodynamic site at the northern end of the cape. For the previous few years the vineyard has been completely unkept and unpruned with no trellising. The vines sprawl everywhere, and pigs, geese, guinea fowl and cows roam free. The site faces north with a little creek running through the middle of the vineyard. Native flowers and plants grow
under the rows with no herbicides or pesticides sprayed and no cultivation. The vineyard is dynamic in every sense; biodynamic, characterised by constant change, full of attitude, energy and new ideas and may be a force that stimulates greater change within viticulture.
The fruit was hand picked and showed varied levels of ripeness through the vineyard and crop, chilled overnight and hand sorted prior to being lightly cold pressed as whole bunches. The juice was left to naturally settle prior to a wild fermentation in mature French barriques and amphorae. No malolactic fermentation and fortnightly lees stirring prior to being bottled with no fining and a light filtration.
