Awards/Reviews

5 Stars 2024 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Single-parcel bottling, 58 year old vines, Stellenbosch’s 2nd-oldest, impresses with vivacity in 22 (98 pts), 7.2 g/l acid countering ripe apricot & honeyed richness. Juicy, composed & elegant. Natural ferment, combo oxidative & reductive winemaking plus 9 months in 17% new oak, 10% Hungarian, deliver complexity & precision.

Called 58 because it’s the product of a vineyard planted on iron and decomposed granite soils in the Bottelary Hills in 1964, this field blend of Chenin Blanc and 2% of other red and white grapes is an expression of place. Lemon and quince flavours are embellished by notes of brioche, vanilla spice, umami and neatly interwoven oak. 2023-29

94 pts Wine Advocate May 2024
The 2022 Barrel Fermented Chenin Blanc offers oak presence alongside freshness, with hints of fresh yellow apples and sweet citrus. Made with splashes of Palomino and Muscat, it features bright acidity and an expressive mouthfeel. The wine presents with a slight reductive sensation before soft, leesy undertones emerge over the clean and elegant finish. Unfortunately, this delightful wine is not yet available in the US. 2023-2034

Winemaker Notes

Stellenrust Barrel Fermented Chenin Blanc 58 – Grapes for this wine are harvested from a single vineyard planted in 1964 of Chenin Blanc on the slopes of the Bottelary Hills, hence the number on the front of the bottle refers to the age of the vines in the year the wine was made.
