Catherine, one of the original South African garagistes has evolved to become a premium artisan producer of fine wines. Her range includes Pinot noir, Sauvignon Blanc, a Rhone styled red blend and a fortified dessert wine.
This crafted Chenin is meticulously grown in the cool Elgin Valley on deep red laterite soils and fermented in handmade, old world styled clay amphorae. These key attributes afford a wine with broad layers of ripe pears, fresh stone fruit and white flowers on a canvas of flinty, wet stone that contributes to the overall texture.
A Chinese-style sweet and sour pork would be perfect with this Chenin Blanc.
