Saltare Old Vines Chenin blanc 2016

Inspired by the Val de Loire. The bushvines look like ancient little trees, struggling for up to fifty years on a dryland West-facing slope on the Paardeberg (Swartland). The low yield ensures rich flavours and the mineral-rich soils adds a fresh note to the wine for a perfect balance. Natural barrel fermentation. This is a food wine like few others.

Tasting notes: This wine has beautiful aromas of lime blossom, naartjie, gooseberry and fynbos (“kooigoed”). The palate offers fresh apricot, marmalade, honey, a mineral texture and a long, clean finish.

Platter 2020 rating: 4½ stars (90 points)
