Naudé Wines, Old Vine Chenin Blanc, Western Cape, South Africa, 2016
(at London, 02 Sep 2019)
Drinking Window: 2019 - 2028
Grapes for this ‘terroir-blend’ come from Swartland, Durbanville and Stellenbosch and are all from 35-50-year-old vines. The fruit is fermented long and slow in old French oak before maturing in the barrel on the lees for up to a year. The wine is rich and striking with a crunchy mineral texture, peach and tree fruit and a herby lick of rosemary. This demonstrates great poise now and will develop beautifully for years to come.
