Stark-Condé Monk Stone Chenin Blanc 2022


Region: Stellenbosch

Tasting note:

“After the block buster 2021 Monk Stone Chenin Blanc, the new release 2022 from Stark Conde will certainly draw a lot of attention. Matured for eight months, 55% in amphorae and 45% in second-fill barrels, the aromatics remain incredibly pure and mineral driven offering pithy white citrus, freshly baled straw, dried herbs, white peach and lemon infused chamomile tea with melted honey hints. The palate is wonderfully fresh and crisp with an intense tangy acidity and complex layers of sweet lemon pastille, crunchy peach and stony liquid mineral nuances. Yet another extremely delicious and finely-crafted Chenin Blanc from Rudger van Wyk that shows impressive focus and intensity with a meticulous crystalline purity and elegance. Drink on release or ideally, cellar for a further 2 to 3+ years to allow this classy Chenin Blanc to unfurl.” – Greg Sherwood MW.

“Rudger van Wyk uses a combination of amphoras and older barrels to produce this elegant, well-judged Chenin Blanc from vines at 150 meters in the Jonkershoek Valley. Leesy, textured amd nicely focused, with green apple, greengage and understated patisserie spices” – Tim Atkin MW 93
