'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

'Aromatics are subtle and complex – gun smoke, floral perfume, herb, pear, peach, lime and green apple as well as ginger and a little white pepper while the palate shows pure fruit and a cracking line of acidity before a super-dry finish. It’s already an extremely attractive wine but should only gain extra dimension over time.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 93/100

'This vintage boasts fragrant citrus blossom, green melon, yellow stone fruits, white pear, ginger, Pina colada, honeysuckle and finishes with a flinty, cool earth lick. Chi Riesling 2021 is immediately appealing and will gather complexity over a decade.' – Jessica Saurwein, Winemaker
