42-year-old single vineyard Chenin. Whole-bunch pressed into old oak and left. Subtle, fresh and pure. Fine, lacey acid line, with a moreish, chalky texture. Unadulterated. 100% Chenin Blanc at 12% alcohol. We change the label every year to best suit the feeling I think the wine is giving. The photo for the 2017 vintage was taken by me (Craig) on a trip Carla and I made to the Nortehrn Cape province near Namibia. The image is of a Sociable Weavers nest. The nest can house up to 300 birds at a
time and be decades old. We loved the birds and the nest and thought this was a very good label pairing for our latest Cortez vintage: because our wines respect all types of birds nests.
