Wildeberg 'Terroirs'

Chenin Blanc, 2019

South Africa White

Paarl 75cl

A single site Chenin Blanc from old bush vines grown on the Smuts Block rooted in the rocky, granite seam outcrops that surface rarely in the otherwise deep, sandy loams between Table Mountain and Paarl. Hand-harvested bush vine fruit, naturally fermented back at the farm at Wildeberg. We loved the debut 2018. The new 2019 is a touch riper. Pineapple, ripe pear and citrus on the nose, has energy and verve, minerality and fresh acidity. It's weighty and ripe yet remains light on its feet, due to its acidity. Long and complex; a hint of nutty oak on the finish adding texture and interest, a wine that grows in the glass and very food friendly.
