New
'Pale straw with vibrant gold rim colour. A melange of apricots, nectarines, grapefruit rind, honey and almond brittle on the nose. Beautiful restrained mouth feel. Finishes with a lively, mineral accent. A great match for pork chops with braised apples, seared scallops, or a chicken casserole.' – Winemaker

Tasting notes on the 2019 vintage:
'Sublime fruit expression from venerable 1952 certified single-vineyard, farmed organically for past 4 years. 2019 fragrant & subtle, with sweet spice, hint of marzipan. Wild yeast fermented in mostly older French barrels.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

'Optenhorst is consistently one of the best Chenin Blancs in the up-and-coming Breedekloof region, produced from a parcel that was planted in 1952. Rich, textured and exotic, with pear and nectarine fruit, scented cinnamon oak and the underlying freshness and balance of its old vines. Drink 2022-27.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 94/100
