Full tasting note and wine making –
Painted Wolf The Den Chenin Blanc from Swartland has a lively aroma and flavour of melon and pear with an underlying savoury minerality. The wine has a great texture and a long layered finish with bright acidity keeping it fresh and vibrant. The Chenin Blanc grapes are harvested from a number of vineyards in the Swartland region, both irrigated and dry farmed vines of 20 to 40 years old and 10% Chardonnay was added.
This wine was made from ripe grapes picked to deliver a rich flavour and texture. It is made up from 3 different tanks produced in different ways. Approximately 50% of the wine was made with clean cold tank ferment, with about 25% being fermented with a small number of French oak staves and the further 25% balance, a ‘funky’ ferment with lots of lees in the tank and a very slow fermentation to build glycerol and texture in the wine. The final blend was put together from these components. This wine should be drunk within 2-3 years of the vintage.
