'Rare they may be, but Elgin Chenin Blancs are invariably of very good quality. This wild fermented example from Bobby Wallace is floral, racy and lightly wooded with some stony reduction, subtle lees, taut acidity and a hint of oak sweetness. Drink 2021-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 91/100

'Now our third vintage, produced from a small parcel of Chenin blanc grapes sourced from within the cool-climate district of Egin. Chenin Blanc is something of a rarity in Elgin and only 1542 bottles of Off the Record Chardonnay 2020 were produced.

The wine has an attractive pale straw colour. The nose leads with appealing citrus notes, which unfold onto the palate with a rich, creamy mouthfeel. The broad spectrum of citrus, apples and blossom, backed by an underlying minerality and supported by gentle wooding have contributed to the complexity of this Chenin Blanc, which culminates in a long lingering finish.' – Mark and Bobby Wallace, Winemakers

Producer information Brothers Mark and Bobby Wallace have spent the last four years creating their own wine project together. What originally started as making some braai wines for themselves and friends has turned into a new label, whereby they seek out unique vineyard sites. Their first wine under their Off the Record label is an Elgin Chenin Blanc – a scarce wine due to there being only three Chenin Blanc vineyards in Elgin.
