This OFFSPRING was thoughtfully blended - Semillon from Elgin, Chenin blanc from Wellington and Verdelho from the Voor Paardeberg. All the components were made separately. As the grapes came into the winery, it was pressed and the juice went straight to tank. It received no additions and from there went straight to older french oak barrels, underwent spontaneous fermentation, stayed in barrel for one year, received a small amount of sulpher, got blended and finally bottled.
This unplanned wine scored 94 points out of 100 in the recent Tim Atkin report on South African wine. So the wine turned out really nicely.
