Old Road Wine Stone Trail Chenin Blanc 2020

The Old Road Wine Co. tells the story of special vines grown in the rugged corners of the Franschhoek wine country. The worn smooth stones of a meandering trail tell the story of dedicated farm hands that tend to this vineyard, planted in 1984, isolated amongst the fynbos and forest on the slopes of the Franschhoek valley.

Old Road Wine Stone Trail Chenin Blanc is concentrated yet fresh, with mouth-filling white pear, quince and apricot, followed by aromatic almond blossom and a balanced, mineral lingering finish. Its depth of flavour is one of the Stone Trail’s stand-out features, along with a bright, focused acidity and earthy minerality which should see it age well.
The unirrigated vineyard that supplies the grapes for this wine was planted in 1982 and is at an altitude of 380m above sea level. The vineyard started as a trellised vineyard, but over the years it became an improvised bush vine. Its grapes give excellent acidity in this wine and a perfect balance. At this high altitude, the vineyard is exposed to cool afternoon breezes every day. Grapes were hand-harvested in small bins at optimal ripeness. Grapes are whole-bunch pressed and allowed to settle before being racked to the barrels for natural fermentation. After fermentation the wine underwent 9 months’ barrel maturation in mostly older French oak barrels as to add depth and staying power without detracting from the natural fruit character. Maturation on the primary lees with regular stirring or batonnage ensured further complexity and verve.
