The Tin Mine White 2021

R185.00

Characteristics
Type – White
Style – Dry
Body – Medium
Taste – Fragrant

The Chenin Blanc comes from low yielding old vines (38 years). All these vineyards are lying at altitudes that range from 300-500 meters above sea level; these higher elevated slopes tend to give the blending partners a beautiful natural acidity, resulting in a pleasant pungency.
The richness and full-bodied fruit has been accentuated by the open canopies of the vineyards during ripening. All these flavours are backed with a flinty minerality from the decomposed granite soils of the PolkadraaiHills.
