Winemaking and Tasting Notes
   
The Uncensored Version a project of heart, and a collaboration between brothers, Mark and Bobby Wallace.

This is our fifth vintage, produced from a small parcel of Chenin Blanc grapes sourced from within the cool-climate district of Elgin. Chenin Blanc is something of a rarity in Elgin and only 2700 bottles of the Off the Record Chenin Blanc 2022 were produced.

Wild ferment and barrel aged for 10 months in 2nd, 3rd& 4th fill barriques. The wine underwent partial Malolactic fermentation in barrel. No added enzymes, yeast and fining agents were used in the making of this wine.

The wine has an attractive pale straw colour. The nose leads with appealing citrus notes, which unfold onto the palate with a rich, creamy mouthfeel.

The broad spectrum of citrus, underlying minerality and gentle wooding have contributed to the complexity of this Chenin Blanc and culminate in a long lingering finish.
