Wine maker notes
The Agter-Paarl area is the ideal region for growing Chenin Blanc and our farmers have the largest collection of old vine Chenin Blanc in the country. To do justice to the excellent bush vine (un-trellised) grapes, we only use free-run juice - we don’t press the grape skins - and we leave the Chenin Blanc on its lees for three to four months before bottling for a richer, fuller mouthfeel. We call this our ’sweet and sour’ wine - the acidity and sweetness are perfectly balanced. We’ve been told many times that this is a wine you taste and immediately love - and who are we to disagree?
A versatile option for almost any dish - especially spicy Thai curries, Mediterranean tapas and rich seafood dishes. Great on its own too!
The 2017 Chenin Blanc (100% Chenin Blanc) is a straight-up delicious white that’s as quaffable as it gets. Citrus peel, a hint of mint, and exotic fruits all give way to a medium-bodied, forward wine that’s perfect for mid-week drinking.
