The chicken may have come before the egg, but in the case of Silwervis, the egg came first. During an estate auction, 3 famous South African winemakers pledged to whoever bought the cement fermentation egg that they would fill it with their best Chenin Blanc efforts. The result is the bottle you see before you...pure South African mineral "steen".

Lemon curd, fuller and lightly textured, more cerebral than flashy

Clean and pure, a nice concentration with appetizing acidity - old-vine Swartland Chenin made naturally and matured in the egg with some skin contact and carbonic maceration After one year in the egg, it spends six months in old oak to settle down. This produces a textured, honest Chenin unlike any other - small production below 1000 bottles
