Lievland Chenin Blanc 2017


Winemaker Notes

This wine is representative of the versatility of old vine Chenin Blanc for which South Africa has built up a strong reputation. It has a light straw colour with a golden hue, showing notes of white peach, citrus and pineapple on the nose, a rich and ripe mouthfeel coupled with vibrant acidity and a great minerality tying it all together on the finish. This wine has the intensity and structure to develop gracefully over the next 5 -7 years. The grapes for this wine come from two very interesting vineyards farmed by 2 of our wine-growing-partners. The Eenzaamheid (Solitude) vineyards are well-known in South African wine circles. This 7th-generation family farm, owned by the Briers-Low family, dates back to 1693. It sits on a basin of shale that is excellent for Chenin Blanc. 30% of the wine comes from a dry-farmed bush-vine vineyard planted in 1976. It is on a South-facing slope and produces grapes that show more stone fruit and mineral, flinty characteristics. The balance of the wine is from a dry-farmed bush-vine vineyard planted in 1983. Slightly warmer, it produces concentrated wines with amazing texture.This Chenin can easily be enjoyed on its own, but can also complement dishes such as smoked pork, Cape Malay bobotie, or creamy seafood.
