Inspired and named after the Duwweltjies (Tribulus terrestris – Devils thorns) growing in the vineyard that cling to the soles of your shoes—reminders of paths travelled and those yet to be explored. This Chenin blanc is sourced from a heritage bush vine vineyard, planted in 1961, on the north western tip of the Muldersvlei bowl in Paarl.

Tasting notes:
'From a Paarl vineyard of Chenin Blanc planted in 1961. Pear, white peach, citrus and dried herbs on the nose. The palate is light with a gentle acidity and a little grip to the finish. Perhaps a little lacking in vigour compared to previous vintages but still a very intriguing wine.' – Christian Eedes,, 92/100

'Notes of white peach, citrus peel and the signature dried pineapple on the nose. The palate is light but dense with a generously creamy texture hung on a pithy skeleton.' – Winemaker

Alc: 12.5% | RS: 2.4 g/L | TA: 4.9 g/L | PH: 3.43

About Thistle and Weed:
Thistle and Weed was created in 2015 by Fairview winemaker Stephanie Wiid and Delheim viticulturist Etienne Terblanche. These Young Gunners first burst onto the scene with their maiden-release 2016 Thistle & Weed Duwweltjie Chenin Blanc which garnered a Platter’s 5 star. They produce artisan wines, focusing primarily on Chenin Blanc, and their grapes are sourced from organic and responsibly farmed vineyards from different parts of the Cape.
