SOUTH AFRICA

South Africa has always been regarded as a New World wine producing region, despite the fact that the first grapes were pressed for winemaking in 1659. The Modern South African wine industry as we know it today could be said to be little over a decade old; apartheid rule isolated the country from international trading for decades and there have been remarkable developments and a rapid catch up since the advent of democracy in 1994. Between1995 to 1997 alone, exports increased by 335%.

There are now over 600 wine producers in South Africa, a figure that has doubled since 2000, and the country is now the ninth largest producer of wines worldwide. Empowerment has also been a key element in the development and today over 100,000 people from historically disadvantaged groups are now employed in the wine industry.

TASTING NOTES

With a delicate green golden appearance, the 2016 vintage promises a fresh array of wonderful fruit aromas. Papaya, melon and limes jostle for attention aside freshly sliced Granny Smith apples and touches of oak spice. Sourced as it was from an array of mature vineyards across the Western Cape, the wine is richly layered with golden ripe fruit and finely balanced texture. The...

TASTING NOTES

The wine’s appearance is marked by a vibrant, dense and purple hue. The nose exhibits berry fruit aromas of mulberries and blueberries, subtly framed by vanilla spice and earthy notes. Gentle structure and finesse combine to make the 2014 so attractive. It has good weight and richness, with layers of flavour, yet there is a really classic element to the...

A richer, riper example of old vine Chenin with spiced apple, peach and hints of mandarin from the warmer Swartland. This wine is always underscored by a fine citrus acidity which brings its gorgeous fullness to life.

TASTING NOTES

Block A stands on a mixture of granite and clay with a good elevation just inland from False Bay. It is lively in appearance, this wine displays bright aromas of summer blossoms and notes of dried mango.

Image of wine Single Vineyard Chenin Blanc, Block S2
BUY
TASTING NOTES

The land that is home to Block S2 was formed rather dramatically by submarine avalanches of shale and sandstone mixed with lava providing a mineral hotbed for the vines to tap into. With its deep golden colour and rich, earthy flavour profile, this is a serious Chenin Blanc. On the nose there are decadent aromas of burnt caramel and pie-crust...

Block W benefits from coastal influence at only 4.5km inland from False Bay and beds its roots in clay enriched subsoil with a coarse sandy topsoil. This wine is deep golden in appearance, displaying richness, finesse and power. Herbal aromatics are complemented by truffle notes, yet there is a layer of confected, tangy citrus fruit that lifts the wine. Very...
