Daschbosch Mossiesdrift Steen

Daschbosch Mossiesdrift Steen

DaschBosch crafts elegant wines and experimental wines whilst upholding traditional methods of wine-making and craftsmanship, since 1754, when the farm land was granted by the Governor of the Cape of Good Hope, Rijk Tulbagh. Their wines reflect the vastness of the South African landscape and reflect the decades of vines growing in one place, in the unyielding sun, the cold winter rain, the storms and winds, on a mountain, on a plain somewhere which produces these delicate but powerful wines.

Vineyards

100% Chenin Blanc from 58 year old bush vine in Breedekloof on the eastern border of Paarl, these vines are grown on Mossiesdrift farm which is registered as part of South Africa's Old Vine Project.

Vinification

Between 4-5 tonnes of grapes were hand picked in the middle of March. The grapes were de-stemmed and crushed, cold soaking and slow fermentation at 15-22°C to enhance flavours and colour. The wine was fermented in 3rd & 4th fill barrels for about 3 weeks with commercial as well as wild yeast then left on the thick lees for 6 months and barrel-matured for 8 months.

Tasting Notes

With shades of lemon and straw in the glass and earthly character of wet stone, hints of ripe citrus and spice on the nose. Vibrant and concentrated with intense yet restrained fruit balanced by taut acidity and notable length.

Perfect with creamy chicken and seafood dishes.
