Wildeberg Terroirs Chenin Blanc, 2018

Wildeberg is our small farm in Franschhoek. Wildeberg Terroirs is an expression of the most exciting vineyard blocks we work with in the wider Coastal Region. This is our first release of a Chenin Blanc from the long-established soils of Paarl Mountain.


100% Chenin Blanc

SKU: SBO510 Category:
How it's made

A single site Chenin Blanc from old bush vines grown on the Smuts Block which is old, dry-grown bush vines rooted in the rocky, granite seam outcrops that surface rarely in the otherwise deep, sandy loams between Table Mountain and Paarl. Hand-harvested bush vine fruit naturally fermented back at the farm at Wildeberg. As little work as possible is required in order to capture the site-specific energy of this fruit.

Tasting Notes

A nose of warm sand gives way to a wave of broad blood orange, pithy texture and a taut, wiry seam of granite texture in the finish.

Food Match

Pairs well with a variety of different dishes, but excellent with oysters, game and grilled fish. Also nice with Duck à l'Orange and asparagus dishes.
