This features a seductive texture that coats the palate, offering an intriguing mineral grip that supports notes of yellow plum and melon at the core, with spice and floral accents gliding along the edges. Delivers a long, inviting finish. Chenin Blanc. Drink now through 2029.
The grapes Terre Brûlée Le Blanc are 100% Chenin Blanc and sourced from blocks in the
Swartland region which are predominantly shale and granite soils. Swartland is an area
that is gaining acclaim, located about an hour north of Cape Town with pockets of vineyards
spread throughout the foothills of the Piketberg, Porterville, Riebeek and Perdeberg
mountains and along the banks of the Berg River. “Swartland” translates to mean “the black
land,” taking its name from the endangered, indigenous renosterbos (rhino bush) which once
turned the land a dark color at certain times of the year.
