Tasting Notes

SA’s oldest chenin, Stellenbosch block mostly planted 100+ years ago. Undergoes initial carbonic maceration to protect oxidation-prone juice. 2018 stately & opulent but also has thrilling acidity lighting up gorgeous red apple, peachy fruit. Precision, as in 2017 (4.5 stars, 94 pts). Possibly longest-lived of these whites.
