‘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. 2021-26’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 95/100

‘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)

‘A blend of 55% Chenin Blanc from both the Paardeberg and Bot River, 30% Verdelho from both Bot River and Voor Paardeberg and 15% Grenache Blanc as above. A complex nose with some smoky reduction before notes of citrus, peach, apricot, some yeasty complexity, ginger and other spice. The palate is rich and round with layers of flavour, tangy acidity lending vitality, the finish long and dry. The Grenache Blanc lends an extra dimension, and this is shaping as a very smart Cape White Blend, perhaps now deserving of its own proprietory name, something that Niemann says she is indeed considering.’ – Christian Eedes,, 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.' – Momento Wines

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.
