The Platinum range presents the finest barrels of wine from the Lyngrove cellar. Grapes for the Lyngrove Platinum Chenin Blanc 2020 were harvested from 3ha of old bush vines planted in 1980 on soils consisting of weathered granite on clay, with a north facing slope. Grapes were hand-picked end-February, brought to the cellar crisp and cold, followed by a light whole-bunch pressing, only extracting the finest free-run juice for vinification. Juice cold settled for 48 hours, racked with some fine lees to older 300-litre French oak barrels where fermentation commenced. Fermentation temperature was controlled between 16-22°C and was completed after 12 days. The wine was kept on the lees in barrel and stirred weekly to gain extra complexity and mouth feel for a total of 9 months until bottling. Residual sugar: 3.8g/l. Bottled at 13.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Layers of apple, yellow peach, pineapple and sweet melon on the nose, with hints of vanilla, apricot and fresh ginger.

Palate: The palate is a luscious fruit salad with creamy texture and structure.

Finish: A lemon zest finish.
