'Chi means 'life force' and Chi stands for Chiuta (an African rain god). Situated in the fertile Elgin valley, the picturesque vineyard site inspired the creation of this crisp, handcrafted Riesling.' – Jessica Saurwein, Winemaker
'Grapes from two sites in Elgin. Both nose and palate are currently entirely callow – pear and blossom with perhaps a touch of flinty reduction and green apple while the palate is overtly sweet. Lots of plump fruit, the acidity currently completely camouflaged. A residual sugar of 14.2g/l and total acidity of 7.9g/l gives rise to the thought that this wine will only show at its best in years to come but it appears unresolved for now.' – Christian Eedes,
