4 Stars 2024 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Unoaked 22 (89 pts) from bushvine chenin, grenache & viognier is delightfully fresh & fragrant, mixing tropical fruit, peach melba & apricot for tasty summer sipper. Bunch pressed, fermented naturally & lees aged.
60% Chenin Blanc / 30% Grenache Blanc / 10% Viognier
The grapes were hand-picked from old, low-yielding parcels of bush vines, and chilled prior to whole-bunch pressing. Naturally fermented at low
temperatures, with no malolactic fermentation to preserve the freshness of the wine. The wine was aged sur lie in stainless steel tanks with regular stirring of the lees for extra complexity and a rounder mouthfeel.
The Vin Blanc 2022 is a refreshing, unwooded Cape White blend. The Chenin Blanc component contributes tropical fruit salad flavours with hints of stone fruit, Granny Smith apple and a lively, yet balanced acidity. A luscious texture with notes of white peach, winter melon, elderflower and greengage are derived from the Grenache Blanc and further rounded off by the floral notes, fresh apricot, peaches and cream of the Viognier. The fresh and textured palate is supported by a linear acidity that enhances the mineral and concentrated fruit laden finish. Ideal for summer.
