‘Powdery, fragrant honeysuckle and jasmine with sweetness of ripe white peach. Creamy, tingling, richly textured spreading all over the palate. Apricots and avocado, matcha powder and tarragon and dripping ripe white melon. A quiet tap-tap of pepper on the scalpel-fine drawn-out finish. Elegant and beautifully composed. This is a seriously classy, sophisticated-artisan Chenin,’ says Robinson who was internationally recognised as ‘the Best Wine Critic of the World’ in the Best Wine of the World Competition 2018.
The unique Paarl climate, coupled with granite rock and schist soils mixed with clay, are perfect for varietals whose heritage is in the Rhône valley. While several blocks of Chenin Blanc are “old vines”, most of the farm has been re-planted since 2015. Red vines planted include Syrah, Mourvèdre and Grenache Noir. White wine varietals include Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, Marsanne and Picpoul Blanc.
