Well-known Chenin Blanc pioneer, Ken Forrester, commissioned us to create a design for his passionately hand crafted, unfined and unfiltered Chennin Blanc, a new pinnacle in his line-up of all the previous Chenin successes titled “Dirty Little Secret”. In his own words :
“We decided to make this Chenin completely natural. All wild yeasts, spontaneous fermentation, no sulphur until after malolactic fermentation with 14 days of skin and stalk contact pre-fermentation. It then went into beautiful old, neutral 400 litre French barrels for five months after which it was bottled unfiltered and unfined to comply with all natural rules and laws.”

Our design solution echoed this bold, personal achievement of excellence through our creation of a hand styled label that echoed the dedication and personal mystery behind the secret of making such a fine wine. The striking yellow accent colour emphasises the sun and natural vibrance in the taste that makes this Chennin so distinctly different.
