Kliprug Bush Vine Chenin Blanc, Kaapzicht, Stellenbosch, South Africa, 2020
Grape: 100% Chenin Blanc, hand picked fruit from 40 year old vines. Whole bunch pressing, natural fermentation until dry, ageing 12 months in various 300/400/500L oak barrels.
From an unirrigated vineyard with weathered granite topsoil and crumbly clay sub-soil, it is called 'Kliprug' by the farm workers because of the numerous rocks on the ground.
A dry Chenin with a deep, complex nose of bruised yellow fruits, white peach, creamy and plush, showing honeyed pineapples, leesy yellow fruits. Plenty of gravitas, fruit weight, focus and textural complexity. The palate is medium bodied and fresh with a richly fruited core leading to a crisp, dry finish.
Awarded in the Chenin Blanc Top 10 Challenge and Veritas Awards - Double Gold (Both in 2020)
"Another rendition of old-vine Chenin from the Stellenbosch property that also produces 'The 1947'... Pretty perfume, with top notes of flowers and herbs before citrus and peach, while the palate shows clean fruit, fresh acidity and a saline finish." 93/100 points, Christian Eedes, Decanter.com, February 2021
