Grapes for this 10th vintage of Luddite Chenin 2021 were sourced from Luddite Farm House Block harvested on 9 February 2021 and Luddite Farm Dog Block harvested on 9 February 2021. Grape processing is kept simple, after crushing and destalking, it is left to naturally start fermenting. Fermented on the skins for 21 days with punch-downs twice a day to wet the cap and keep the ferment homogeneous. Thereafter pressed directly to barrel with as much sediment as possible. While in barrel, the wine undergoes regular batonnage, this allows the wine to fill out and adds texture. 1,900 bottles were produced. Bottled at 12.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Spicy, lime blossom and greengage. After a while, nose opens up to give hints of white fruit and the slightest touch of flor.

Palate: Fresh lean entry. Great palate weight and mouth-feel with white fruit and dry peaches.

Finish: The finish is long, lean and salty.
