Land Of Hope Chenin Blanc Reserve – 2014
“4 Star Chenin from bush vines on the ocean-facing slopes of the Helderberg.”
R164.00 per bottle (South Africa)
Rooted in wonderful granite soils, this Chenin Blanc is made from predominantly old bush vines on the ocean-facing slopes of the Helderberg in Stellenbosch. Picked and sorted by hand, the free run juice was fermented then matured on the lees in small Burgundian barrels for 8 months (only 20% new). Chenin Blanc is South Africa’s most versatile premium white grape, with unique quality found in this site. In essence this Chenin Blanc has immense personality and flavour and will mature for a further three years.
