About this Item

Ou Kopland Chenin Blanc, 2021
36 (6 x 6) 750ml

“The thing that really interests me with wine is starting from scratch with the bare earth and designing a wine from the ground up.” - David Trafford

100% Chenin Blanc

A 39-year-old bush vine block on the top of the Bottelary Hills on crumbly shale soil. Picked in the cool early morning and lightly squashed and left for a couple of hours skin contact before pressing in a traditional wooden basket press and barrel fermented in neutral oak. Matured for 10 months and the best 400 litre barrel was selected for this auction wine. No yeast or acid added, and the wine was bottled unfiltered.

Tasting Notes: Deep, vibrant straw colour. Still rather closed and takes a while to evolve in the glass. Dense mineral fruit on the palate. A wine that will unfurl over many years.

Ready for drinking in 2023.
