Cape White Blends may be doomed to be forever niche but man, do they make for some spectacular wines. Anysbos is the Bot River property owned by Johan Heyns, who’s the brother of Gabrielskloof owner Bernhard Heyns and Marelise Niemann, whose own label is Momento, is the winemaker – Disdit is the name of the white assemblage and it seems to get better and better with each passing vintage. The 2019 consists of 70% Chenin Blanc, 29% Roussanne and 1% Grenache Blanc. The nose shows some struck-match reduction before white and yellow fruit, herbs and earth. The palate has excellent fruit purity, electric acidity and a super-long finish. I tasted it next to Rocking Horse 2019 from Thorne & Daughters and there was nothing to choose between the two in terms of sheer quality. All of a piece and super-detailed, it’s really worth seeking out. Score: 97/100 – Christian Eedes

The first time I tasted the 2018 Disdit white blend I was blown away. So what to expect from the follow-up 2019? Predictably the wine shows much more tension, flinty reduction and impressive minerality like many top SA 2019 whites. The aromatics reveal a complex melange of white citrus, wet thatch, dried herbs, fresh fennel, yellow pithy orchard fruits and a curiously alluring, earthy mineral undertone. The palate fruit expression is cool and tightly wound showing a herbal intensity, pithy white peaches, savoury buttery notes and a vibrant, fresh textured finish. Very impressive indeed and certainly a wine that will match well with a host of fine cuisine! Score: 96+/100 Greg Sherwood MW – Handford Wines

Winemaking Approach




Producer Information: Anysbos

In 2007 Johan and Sue Heyns bought two pieces of land in the Bot River Valley that would become Anysbos, inviting Marelise Niemann to make their wines. Anysbos is named after the Anysboegoe (Agathosma Cerefolium) that grows in the Overberg. The remains of a stone cottage became their home and the old mule shed, offices and a tasting room. They built dams and roads and planted olive trees. Twenty two thousand of them. In 2012 they planted their first dryland bush vines of Grenache Noir. Since then they have added Shiraz, Cinsault, Chenin Blanc, and more Rhône varieties. Grenache Blanc and Roussanne. Watching things grow was just a bit slow for Joburgers so they started making goat’s milk cheese. The passion people creating Anysbos are constantly learning and evolving, there wine from humble origins is simple exquisite.
