Named after the humble instrument in every grape farmer's tool kit, this Chenin Blanc was harvested from large bush vines on granite soils located on the northern side of the Paardeberg Mountains. The high elevation and northerly exposure to sunlight result in a soft wine with tropical fruit flavours and hints of biscuits from lees stirring.

The grapes are harvested over the period of 12 days, so new juice is constantly being added to already fermenting tanks, which extends the fermentation by about 20 days.

"Great savoury-honeyed richness for a smooth and almost buttery white... some kind of special batter baked into golden goods. Dry as the Swartland desert, craft and smily as the man, a Chenin Blanc for no one, everyone and you." – Canadian Wine Critic Michel Godel
