Producer
Kanu has an enviable reputation among South Africa’s leading Chenin Blanc producers, and in recent years the rest of the range had received the same attention, both in the winery and in the press. The bird seen on the labels is the Kanu, the mythical bird of promise; according to the story, all who fall under its shadow will be blessed with a bountiful harvest.

Vineyard
Twenty to twenty-five year old bush vines provide the fruit for this Chenin Blanc. The soil is predominately Glenrosa. Canopy management of the vines ensured full flavour concentration and the grapes were hand- picked at optimal ripeness in February.

Winery
The grapes were carefully hand-sorted before being whole-bunch pressed and left to settle overnight. The juice, along with some fine lees, was then racked to barrel: mainly 400-litre French oak, with some 300-litre Hungarian barrels, and thirty-five percent new wood in total. During the subsequent ten months’ maturation, the lees were kept in suspension by rolling the barrels weekly.

Taste
Big, full-bodied Chenin, combining ripe peach and apricot fruit with the honey and spice of barrel fermentation, and cut with a green apple freshness.
