2020 The Foundry Geographica 'Bonsai' Chenin Blanc
Grapes for this wine come from an old Chenin vineyard planted on the Helderberg on decomposed granite with clay subsoil. These bushvines yield tiny bunches with very small grapes, hence the name “Bonsai” Chenin Blanc.
Lots of intense stone fruit, quince, ginger, yellow apple and stony minerality. Constantly evolving in the glass the wine takes on savoury saline aroma, subtle nuttiness and gunflint. The palate is equally intense and rich, balanced by an energetic acidity and dense fruit weight. The wine has a pleasingly long finish.
