Overview

The vineyards that produce this charming Chenin Blanc are old bush vines principally in the Helderberg area of Stellenbosch and are located on extensively decomposed granite soils on Ocean-facing, gravelly slopes, benefiting from cooling maritime breezes. The winter and spring preceding the 2018 harvest were drier than normal and were followed by a warm ripening season. The weather was very warm, especially from the end of October towards the end of January, which restricted the growth and constituted lower bunch masses and smaller berries, however, the vineyards and grapes being very healthy overall

Winery Tasting Notes

Chenin is an extremely versatile grape, able to make excellent wines in many different guises, from Late harvest to Straw wine to classic dry Chenin and even Méthode Champenoise.

This example is a wonderfully lively, intense, fruity and beautifully balanced dry Chenin Blanc. Aromas of green apples and white peach invite the juicy, yet taut palate. A depth of fruit is what sets this wine apart. It shows great persistence of flavour and freshness that linger on the palate long after the wine has gone. Very individual, the character of this wine makes it a perfect companion to warm summer days and long balmy evenings.
