Thistle & Weed Khakibos White Blend 2022


Region: Western-Cape

Tasting note:

‘41% Verdleho, 28% Chenin Blanc, 17% Palomino, 10% Alvarinho and 4% Finao Pires. Subtle and intricate aromatics of white and yellow fruit, thatch and dried herbs while the palate has great clarity of fruit and bright acidity before a pithy finish. An unusual collection of varieties, but their union is very well judged, and the result is complex without sacrificing approachability in any way.’ – CE 95/100

‘Aimed at the by-the-glass market, this is the sort of thing you’d be very happy to find in a restaurant. Partnering Verdelho with 49% Chenin Blanc, Palomino, Albariño and Fernão Pires, this is a seamless blend with subtle skin contact bitterness, citrus, pear, grapefruit and green fig flavours, racy minerality and a waxy undertone. 2024-30’ – Tim Atkin MW, 94/100

‘Aromas of neroli, preserved lemon and toasted brioche.The richly layered, and expressive palate is kept in line by searing acidity finishing with a playful zest.’ – Winemaker
