2017 DAK WIJN, Villiera. Stellenbosch, South Africa
From their website:
"The 2017 is our first vintage of Dak Wijn. After many trips to our Vineyard in the South of France (Domaine Grier) where we tasted some great Rivesaltes Ambres, Rancios etc. (placed outside in demijohns and exposed to all the elements) we decided to try one for ourselves.
The Chenin was partially fermented before fortifying, leaving some residual sugar. To add to its complexity and interest it was placed in demijohns on the tasting room roof for eight months. There it was madeirised in the sun and allowed to partially oxidise under a light flor veil. After enough time in the jars it was placed in used barrels for 14 months to settle.
There are only 600x 500ml bottles of this wine."
