Nederburg The Anchorman Chenin Blanc, Western Cape

Nederburg The Anchorman Chenin Blanc, Western Cape

Named after founder Philppus Wolvaart who first planted Chenin Blanc in the late 18th century at the Nederburg farm. The fruit was sourced from old, low-yielding, dry-land bush vines in Darling, Paarl and Durbanville. The fruit was fermented by a number of methods including in stainless steel, second-use oak barrels and large oak vats; a portion also underwent a ‘carbonic maceration’ fermentation (usually reserved for light red wines) to produce an overtly fruity wine. The components were lees-aged for about nine months prior to blending. Dry, minerally and well-structured, it shows ripe apricot, orange with hints of raisin, spice and floral notes.
