Description

52% Chenin Blanc, 40% Verdelho, 5% Grenache Blanc (five days skin contact) and 3% Grenache Gris (matured in clay pot) – grapes sourced variously from Stellenbosch, Swartland and Voor Paardeberg. Citrus, peach and hay plus a slight reductive overtone on the nose. It’s the palate, however that really impresses with a wonderful coiled quality about it, the flavours taking a good long while to unwind in the mouth. Great fruit definition matched by punchy acidity, a slight grippy quality to the finish. 94/100 Winemag.co.za

Producer Information: Lourens Family Wines

Franco is the assistant winemaker for Chris Alheit and the wines he makes from Chris’s cellar in Hemel-en-Aarde follow a similar path of old-vine complexity and masterly finesse. From his two single-vineyard Steens (Chenin Blancs) to his Rhone red and white blends these are impressive bottlings by any standard. Another New Wave SA star!
