Tasting notes on the 2020 vintage:
'45% Bot River Chenin Blanc, 45% Bot River Verdelho and 20% own Sauvignon Blanc. Spontaneously fermented and matured for nine months in old oak. Pear, lime and peach, dried herbs, some yeasty complexity and spice on the nose while the palate is lean but not too lean, the finish nicely savoury. It’s a well-balanced wine with layers of flavour, the different varieties combining to good effect.' – Christian Eedes,, 93/100

'Persimmon, orange peel, hint of lemon & zesty acid, 2020 engaging combo near-equal chenin & verdelho, 18% sauvignon. Varieties’ attractive verve & vigour subtly rounded by 9 months on lees in older oak.' – Platter's Guide, 4* (89/100)

Producer information The two winemakers of Maanschijn, Paul Hoogwerf and Doug Mylrea, produce artisanal wines from vineyards in the Walker Bay region. They attended the same high school and university, and later on in life their paths crossed again, leading them to create Maanschijn. The Maanschynkop mountain, located behind their winemaking building, provided the inspiration for their name. They strive to produce low intervention, fresh and uniquely South African wines.
