2019 Vintage | 100% Chenin Blanc - Green & Sustainable
Platter's Newcomer of the Year Award - 2020
Said to be one of "Voor-Paardeberg's beauties worth hunting out" - Tim Atkin
Situated roughly 10km out of Wellington and Paarl, the Voor Paardeberg Region is a warm-climate region, but during the summer the prevailing winds from the West Coast keeps the vineyard cool. A region that began getting serious about 20 years ago, it is now gaining fame for some stunning wines.
This wine is characterized by flavours of stone fruit such as apricot, peach and pear. Some barrel-influenced aromas are also prevalent, such as cream, vanilla, some toffee and caramel.
Due to a skin-fermented portion of the harvest, the wine has notes of orange marmalade and lemon blossom.
It has a volume on the mouthfeel, almost ethereal in the sense that as much as it feels weighty and full, it ends with a wonderful mineral salinity that is light and vibrant, leaving you wanting more.
Will cellar nicely.
