Boland Cellar One Formation Chenin Blanc/Sauvignon Blanc / Grenache Blanc
Dry White Blends (<5g/l or up to 9g/l if TA <2g/l lower) () Barrel fermented/barrel matured/wooded (staves, chips or wood rice) 2021


The Sauvignon Blanc and Grenache Blanc underwent brief wood maturation in older small French barrels for three months in order to add complexity to the blend.The final blend was left on the lees for a further two months with regular batonnage before bottling,reselting in a rich,full wine with both structure and elegance.

This partially wooded wine shows layers of green apple with kiwi fruit aromas. Ripe pear and melon flavours as well as green pepper notes are evident on the balanced palate,followed by a gently lingering finish.The addition of grenache Blanc in this blend provides richness and texture with ripe pear fkavours. Finely flavoured dishes of seafood and poultry will compliment this unique blended wine.
