Chenin Blanc is both the oldest and highest-elevation vineyard at Noble Hill. Natural fermentation in large-format concrete vessels yields delicate citrus aromas underlined by granite minerality.
The wine is fermented with wild yeast populations, and left on the fine lees for 9 months with regular stirring to develop fullness and depth. The name “Sur Lie” refers to this extended lees ageing.
This Chenin Blanc opens with aromas of fresh lime blossom, honeydew melon, and green apple. The aromas are balanced by delicate mineral flavours derived from the rocky slopes of the Simonsberg mountains where the wine is grown.
