These old Chenin Blanc bush vines were planted on the Nuwedam Farm in the Paardeberg in 1974 and have produced wines for the likes of Rall, Sadie Family and Alheit. This wine's crisp acidity and white peach and earth flavours draw you in sip after sip.

'Seductive white peach & earth, well-judged oxidative styling (natural old-oak ferment), trenchant dryness in 2018. Thrilling acidity & salinity deepen & extend the unfruity flavours, heighten the sense of being able to reach out & touch the gnarled vines.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

'She may have sold Nuwedam to Chris Alheit, but I hope that Christa von la Chevallerie will continue to make her Chenin Blanc from the farm that belonged to her family for over 60 years. Leesy, structured and mouth-wateringly crisp, this has creamy intensity and a salty flourish. Drink 2021-27.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 93/100

'The follow-up 2018 shows naartjie, yellow peach and a hint of pineapple as well as some yeasty, leesy notes on the nose. The palate is full and flavourful with moderate acidity and a gently savoury finish. Pleasantly rustic in character.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 91/100

'An initial burst of fresh citrus fruit and white peaches together with dried herbs and a earthy nose; while having a punchy acidity and an unmistakable mineral finish whet the palate and begging one to return for another sip.' – Christa von La Chevallerie, Winemaker

Producer information Christa von La Chevallerie created her first wine in 2011. Her Nuwedam Farm is situated in the Paardeberg in Swartland and contains old Chenin Blanc bush vines which were planted in 1974. Christa’s journey with wine began in her gap year in Germany after high school. From there she went on to study viticulture and oenology and spent 9 months in Italy doing research. After returning to South Africa, she gained further experience at Bottelary, Constantia and was exposed to many winemaking regions in the Cape. She then returned to Nuwedam and began rehabilitating the old bush vine. These vineyards have produced exceptional wines including wines for the likes of Donovan Rall, Eben Sadie and Chris Alheit.
