T&W Duwweltjie 2020
Inspired and named after the Duwweltiies (Tribulus terrestris - Devils thorns) growing in the vineyard that cling to the soles of your shoes-reminders of paths travelled and those yet to be explored. This Chenin blanc is sourced from a heritage bush vine vineyard, planted in 1961, on the north western tip of the Muldersvlei bowl in Paarl
This heritage bush vine vineyard, planted in 1961 is well-established in a duplex sand and clay soil. Careful canopy management and pruning ensures the crop is balanced, the vines are tended to and longevity ensured.
The grapes were delicately whole bunch pressed and naturally fermented in older French oak barrels, only the free run juice was used. The lees was stirred (battonage) for the first month, and allowed to mature on the lees for 10 months prior to bottling, unfixed and unfiltered.
Notes of apricot, citrus peel and the signature dried pineapple on the nose. The palate is light but densely layered with a generously creamy texture hung on a pithy skeleton.
