This wine will wow any lover of Chenin Blanc. Rich, opulent and full bodied. Aromas of stone fruits and grapefruit. The palate is rich and layered, with subtle oak supporting it. Notes of honey, citrus and tropical fruit. A touch of minerality compliments the finish.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
Delheim is an eco-friendly, family run estate consisting of two properties based in the area of Simonsberg in Stellenbosch. The estate is a mix of pine forest, heath-like shrub land and vineyards, which at 150 ha make up almost half of the land.
The vineyards, which sit at elevations between 300 - 500 metres, are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Pinotage, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Gewurztraminer and (Rhine) Riesling. The soil is predominantly sandy-loam and the yields are low at an average of 6 - 8 tonnes per ha.
