100% Chenin Blanc
Backsberg Cellars boasts 100 years of winemaking history. Fourth generation, Simone Back and his team are taking Backsberg Cellars to a new level of excellence, to further cement the existing reputation for innovative and quality set by his father.
While sipping their wines you can feel comfortable in the knowledge that they have extended their gentle approach to wine making to care for the environment and the wine you are enjoying is certified carbon neutral.
The wide array of aromatic characters include peach, melon and pineapple. Ripe fruit is tempered by finely balanced acidity to give a mouth-filling, yet refreshing, palate.
Chenin Blanc is exceptionally versatile. It pairs well with salads, vegetables, fish and chicken. Hints of sweetness and a slightly fuller body ensure it complements both spicy and creamier dishes.
Ageing potential: Best enjoyed within 4 years.
IN THE VINEYARD

Grapes are picked over time between 21 and 23 degree Balling. They are then crushed, chilled and settled overnight. Fermented warmer at 16°degrees Celsius in stainless steel to yield a simple, clean but slightly fuller wine.
Certified carbon neutral. Sustainably farmed. Unoaked.
