'Chenin from Swartland & Bot River given vivacity by 30% Voor Paardeberg verdelho. Artful blend now includes dash grenache blanc ex VP & Stellenbosch, remains respectful & expressive of grape & place. Scintillating 2020 lime, apple pie & nut flavours, quince nuance in persistent finale, as in 2019 (4.5 stars, 94 pts).' – Platter's Guide, 5* (95/100)

'Predominantly old-vine sources in the Swartland, Bot River and Voor Paardeberg supply the grapes for this best-ever cuvée of Chenin Blanc with 30% Verdelho and 15% Grenache Blanc. Complex, structured and refined with appealing skin tannins, neutral oak, lime, beeswax, stone fruit and oatmeal flavours and the concentration to age further in bottle. Drink 2021-26.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 95/100

'A full and textured vintage showing fresh lime leaf and yellow kumquat aromas and a palate that sets tropical notes like banana and tinned pineapple against a mouth-watering saline acidity that recalls preserved lemons. A moreish Granny Smith apple skin grip to the finish given length by a coating, beeswaxy mouthfeel.' – Marelise Niemann, Winemaker

Producer information Marelise Niemann began her Momento brand in 2013. Marelise has a passion for Grenache, which she realised after working with Eben Sadie in Priorat in 2010. Grenache is not a widely planted grape in South Africa, but her passion has led her to find the only Grenache Gris vineyard which is located in Voor-Paardeberg. She is lucky enough to work with vines all over the Western Cape which are unique expressions of their regions and terroir.
