The Old Vine Chenin Blanc 2020 shows fresh, tropical notes with hints of jasmine, pear, flint and wet slate. The saline acidity cuts through the ripe fruit and the wonderful textural sensation from the lees pulls through to the finish.
'A rush of white pome fruit exits the glass along with salty sea spray notes and confected fruit - I think of yellow gummy bears. A mineral or flinty character sits beneath the fruit like chainmail, awaiting. The palate is razor sharp; linear but coating in leesy creaminess. It is a wine of some length, its lingering saltiness is something we think is becoming quite signature to the area (Polkadraai Hills).' – Angus Paul, Winemaker

About the name:
'Inspired by an anonymous Medieval English poem, “Tom O’Bedlam”. This can be read many ways - it is quite literally a tale of us going off in flight and producing, zealously, this wine project. Or of the historic South African wine industry as a whole, producing wine in the corner of this mysterious continent. Or more recently, of the pioneering winemakers of the last 25 years, revitalising the industry. Or, in a profound sense, this Bacchic compulsion as humans, that wherever we go, we must make wine.' – Angus Paul, Winemaker
