Opstal Estate Chenin Blanc 2020

Opstal Estate Chenin Blanc 2020


The crushing and destemming method applied allowed grapes to be crushed, destalked and pressed after 8 hours of skin contact. We used a spontaneous fermentation method where the produce spent 40% in barrels and large French oak vessels called Foudre, and 60% in concrete and stainless steel. We then allowed 6 months maturation on the fermentation lees, with the oak component finishing malolactic fermentation.

Tasting Notes

It has a great balance of zippy freshness to go with its aromatic complexity. Attractive aromas of pineapple, pear and citrus are well held together with a subtle spice and complexity from the 6 months that this wine spent in large French oak Foudres.
