Tasting Notes:

The pear drop and peach aromas give away its Chenin Blanc heritage. In the mouth it is simultaneously rich and ripe but also tangy and refreshing. The interplay between acidity, the lively fruity apricot-, nectarine- and pear notes and a broad, creamy oak and lees element is delightful. The mouthfeel and silky texture of the wine is also impressive. It remains succulent but beautifully dry, sophisticated and long.

This gift box includes two bottles of L’Ormarins Ou Bosstock Chenin Blanc 2018.

This vineyard has a unique history and an extraordinary story of “2 lives”. First planted in 1964 on the slopes of the Paardeberg Mountains between Malmesbury and Paarl in the Swartland, these old bush vines were removed from their original home and replanted on the north facing decomposed granite slopes of L’Ormarins, Franschhoek in 2007 & 2008 where they now produce this single varietal wine. Yielding on average around 2 – 3 tons/ha. The vines produce fruit with great purity and balance.

Fermentation and maturation occurred in an old French oak foudre, and the wine was kept on the fine lees for 7 months prior to bottling.

Grapes were hand-picked early in the morning into small lug boxes and taken to the cellar adjacent to the vineyard. They were then whole bunch pressed and the juice settled overnight.
