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 3 years.

An award-Judges favourite like the Land of Hope Reserve demands a tasty dish to go with it, and this recipe created by Craig Cormack is perfect! It’s easy to prepare, but looks fantastic with the grilled carrots, dauphine potatoes and micro greens. We love: The acidity of the Chenin really balances the strong parmesan flavours of the chicken, with the wine and food coming together in a perfectly balanced symphony of flavours.
