2021 Vintage | 100% Chenin Blanc - Green & Sustainable
Platter's Newcomer Winery of the Year Award - 2021
Said to be one of "Voor-Paardeberg's beauties worth hunting out" - Tim Atkin
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.
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.
