Alheit Nautical Dawn Chenin Blanc 2019


Region:  Firgrove

Tasting notes:

” Nautical Dawn is a stunning Chenin Blanc from the Rustenhof farm, planted in 1978 and situated just four kilometres from the waves of False Bay. Fresh, tangy and appropriately salty, with some granitic grip, the understated oak that’s a feature of Chris Alheit’s winemaking, leesy nuances and the graceful concentration of old vines. 2022-29 “. Tim Atkin MW 97P

” As always, the wine is an athlete. Clear yellow fruit and sweet herbs, endless flavour, unreal tension and energy on the palate, coated acidity”. Chris Alheit

” A pretty nose of flowers, talcum powder, white peach and citrus. The palate has great fruit definition and crisp acidity before a slightly bitter finish. This has a lovely clarity about it – pure, balanced and wonderfully sleek”. CE’s rating: 95/100.
