About The Harvest

Yield: 8 /ha
Balling at Harvest: 24°B

In The Cellar

Grapes are hand harvested early in the morning. After destemming, berries and juice are left for 24 hours skin contact at 6C. The free run juice is left for 24 hours to settle. Clear juice is racked into Amphora for fermentation. Once fermentation is finished, the wine is aged for another 8months on the fermentation lees. The yeast autolysis, together with the unique shape and ceramic of the Amphora, contribute to this special wine.

Additional Information

The San people were the indigenous tribe that first walked the hills of Darling. Hannuwa is the San (Bushman) word suggesting the gathering
of good fortune through living in sustainable harmony with nature. This Chenin Blanc is made in an Amphora clay pot taking winemaking back to its roots and adding a well-rounded, delicate profile to our already famous Darling Chenin Blanc. Unfiltered and unrefined, this is as true to nature as can be.
