Laibach Natural Sweet Old Bush Vine Chenin Blanc 2019

The Laibach Natural Sweet White Wine is a totally unique, award winning expression of the Chenin Blanc grape. The grapes are all picked by hand as ripe as possible with no botrytis, only raisins with potential alcohol of nearly 20% by volume. The juice is treated reductively, everything is whole bunch pressed and left to settle with an enzyme to get the juice as clean as possible. It is then inoculated with a red wine yeast for slow and cold fermentation, which takes up to 4 weeks and as soon as it reaches 7% ABV the fermentation is stopped with cooling, sulphur and filtration. The wine is then bottled as soon as possible to prevent fermentation restarting. Lovely refreshing colour.  This Natural Sweet Wine displays aromas of pineapple, white peach and pear. The palate is a fruit explosion with a perfect balance between sugar and acid. An almost sweet sour sensation with oodles of enjoyment and satisfaction. A wine that is great fun to drink and to match with food, like spicy curry dishes and even fat oily meals.
