Grapes for our Patina Chenin Blanc are from a single site at our Goldmine Estate, grown on schist and decomposed dolomitic granite. Chenin has a particular affinity for the warm, Mediterranean terroir along the Riebeeks River, at the foothills of the Kasteelberg, in the Swartland district. T The grapes were harvested with optimal natural analyses, reflecting the even ripening. Half of the grapes fermented spontaneously in concrete eggs, while the other half were skin-fermented for two weeks. Both components were matured in French barrique for 14 months.
