80% Chenin Blanc and 20% Viognier.
There is quite a significant proportion of older (40 year old) vines in the blend; the Chenin grapes comes from old, bush (self supporting) vines. The producers have kept the wine well away from oak in order to highlight the expressive fruit and aromatic qualities.
Drink now and over the next 12 months.
Created by Ryno Booysen. Using traditional winemaking techniques, Ryno has sourced this 40 year old vine Chenin from hidden corners of the Cape.
This is lovely to drink on its own, but plenty of body to work well with simple foods such as grilled fish or chicken, BBQ garlic chilli prawns. Also works well with avocado salad (with Romaine lettuce, tomato, with/without dry cured bacon or ham).
Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
