Old Vines Chenin Blanc 2019

Old Vines Chenin Blanc 2019

Irina Botha is the owner of, and winemaker for, Old Vine Cellars, carefully selecting grapes from old vine vineyards growing high in the foothills of the Cape Fold mountain range. Producing only very low yields, this fruit guarantees Irina with an intensity of fruit flavours in her wines. Warm peachy notes and almonds, layered with ripe pear and a pure acidity to lift on the finish.

"Top quality Chenin Blanc from noteworthy old vineyards in the premium wine growing area of Stellenbosch."

  • Chenin Blanc
  • ABV 13.0%
  • Cork
  • Dry
  • Vegan

“Versatility is the name of the game here with a grape that can be sweet or dry and found at home in the Loire Valley where it originated, or like this example, in the foothills of the Cape Fold Mountains range in South Africa. Made from grapes picked from vines which are at least 30 years old, it has intense, fruit-forward flavours of peach and nectarine and a welcome acidic kick in the tail. It’s unoaked and a long lees contact gives it an added complexity. Yields are low, so it’s an attractive buy at this price.”
