Well, I’ve heard a lot about this wine and finally tasted it today. Tim Atkin MW raved about it and others have mentioned it to me.
David and Nadia Sadie’s assistant winemaker Andre Bruyns makes his own mark with this 85% Chenin Blanc blend from mostly 40 year old Swartland Chenin Blanc vines at 13.5 Abv.
Rich intense nose, a vibrant wine with massive intensity and power. Palate is rich and textural with nuances of yellow peaches, quince confit, and yellow pastille fruits. Pithy and mineral with a stony finish and long length. Very characterful, pleasure packed wine with punch and complexity. (Wine Safari Score: 93+/100 Greg Sherwood MW)
