Embark on a journey with us as we unveil the inaugural vintage from the MMAD team, a season that can only be described as perfection itself. Picture a year blessed with mild ripening conditions that bestowed upon us Chenin Blanc grapes infused with vibrant acidity and an abundance of flavor.

Our meticulous process begins with hand-picking the finest fruit. Approximately one third of these grapes experience the gentle embrace of old French oak puncheons through whole bunch pressing, while the rest are expertly crushed for extended skin contact and fermented in concrete vats before joining their counterparts in the puncheons.

The resulting wine is a harmonious symphony, weaving finesse from the whole bunch pressed component with rich texture from the crushed fruit. It showcases a mesmerizing array of characteristics, including notes of citrus peel, cumquat, subtle hints of hessian, the invigorating essence of sea spray, and a delicate whisper of lanolin.

But that's not all; when you take your first sip, you'll discover a palate that stretches gracefully, framed by a backbone of crisp acidity. And here's the truly exciting part—this wine has an aging potential that promises to evolve and mature, becoming even more exquisite with time.

Don't miss your chance to experience the magic of this exceptional Chenin Blanc. Secure your bottles now and be part of an extraordinary journey that captures the essence of this unforgettable season. Indulge in a wine that is not just a sip but a story waiting to be told.

Hand-picked, half whole bunch-pressed to used French puncheons for fermentation, the balance crushed into concrete tulip-shaped vessels before maturation in used French puncheons. The blend of components give rise to textured, layered citrus peel flavours sewn together by a shaft of glistening acidity.
