Mount Abora sees three wine mavericks collaborating, these being Pieter de Waal who has put out some interesting stuff under the Hermit on the Hill label, Krige Visser responsible for winemaking at Arcangeli Vineyards in Bot River and Johan “Stompie” Meyer of Force Majeure, Mother Rock and JH Meyer Wines.

The trio have come up with something special in the form of Koggelbos Chenin Blanc 2018. Consisting of 50% Swartland fruit vinified by Meyer and 50% Bot River vinified by Visser, the nose shows peach, naartjie, spice and some leesy complexity. The palate is rich despite a modest alcohol of 12.5% – lovely mouthfeel and texture, coated acidity and a finish that is bitter in the best sense. Layers of flavour and well balanced, this is super stuff.
