Alheit Vineyards Huilkrans 2017

This is the first vintage bottled from the Oudam farm as a stand-alone wine, but it has been in planning since 2015. It is named after a cliff on the farm that seems to weep when it rains. the isolation, old vines, low rainfall, deep red sand over red clay all come together to contribute to this chenin.

Deep, complex, almost irony, with citrus and a savoury / rusty undertown.

This wine is on only available in the first week of August – but you can place an order with Simone at carowine@mweb.co.za before then.
