Rall "AVA" White '17

Swartland

Rall "AVA" White '17

"AVA" is 100% Chenin Blanc, sourced from a small vineyard in Riebeek Kasteel in Swartland, with soils of schist and some quartz. The past vintages have been hot and dry, so production has been more limited due to lower yields and therefore scare quantities to offer. "AVA" was fermented in old French oak barrels and then aged for 12 months in old French oak. This is a wine full of great textural notes, fresh acidity and pure fruit notes of pear, lemon and peach with flinty tones and a pithy finish. The wine has incredibly fresh layers and just a hint of spice. Like any of Rall's wines, it is thoughtful, complex and never loses sight of terroir.
