Low alcohol/Non alcohol/De-alcoholised (wine Indicate alcohol level plus variety or blend) (64) Dry  <5g/l or up to 9g/l if TA <2g/l lower


For this purpose, alcohol levels are reduced by about 35% (to 8% A/V) by means of various interventions from vineyard to cellar, which include earlier harvesting to avoid high natural sweetness in the grapes as well as cutting-edge precision technology to remove some alcohol from the wine. The entire process requires utmost care and skill to ensure that the final product is balanced and retains its typicity without compromising on flavour and character.

This fruity Chenin Blanc bursts with vibrant freshness and a variety of seasonal fruit flavours. Expect ripe fruit structure with balanced acidity and an abundance of fruit character, like peaches, melons, passion fruit and yellow apples – all captured in the bottle along with healthy doses of Cape sunshine. The lively and fresh character makes it a versatile companion to food and friends alike.
