‘90% Chenin Blanc and 10% Semillon sourced across the Western Cape, all dryland bushvines with a minimum age of 35 years although mostly between 40 and 50 years. Citrus, peach, thatch, earth and a little reduction on the nose while the palate is dense and relatively thick textured given an alcohol of just 13.11%. Aciditiy is well integrated, and the finish is dry and extremely long.’ – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 93/100

‘The nose is detailed and beautiful - ripe pear and sweet herbs, both citrus juice and rind. The palate is very pure and true, fine boned clarity, lovely proportions, no extra weight (unlike myself). This vintage shows good intensity and saline length. For me, the key word this vintage is purity. This wine is already drinking well in its youth, but will reward maturation.’ – Alheit Vineyards

Producer information Chris and Suzaan Alheit, together with their assistant Franco Lourens and viticultural consultant Etienne Terblanche, are the dream team that firmly establishes Alheit Vineyards as SA’s premier white wine producer. Producing some of our most profound and haunting white wines, Chris and Suzaan Alheit have an especially accomplished touch with Chenin.
