This is our signature expression of the texture and complexity of the Swartland. A blend of Old Vine Chenin blanc with Mediterranean varieties, in 2020 this leads to a floral fragrant wine, with crushed stones, blanched cinnamon and an enticing nectarine and flinty focus. The full, layered palate is balanced by a vibrant acidity and flavours of yellow grapefruit and hints of aromatic spice. 65.5% Chenin Blanc, 17.5% Clairette Blanche, 5.2% Grenache Blanc, 4% Viognier, 4.7% Semillon Gris, 3.1% Verdelho

The 2020 White Old Vines has a minimalist bouquet that offers fleeting glimpses of citrus peel and beeswax, although I would have liked a little more Chenin character to come through. The palate is well balanced with a lovely texture and hints of brioche and walnut. A subtle lemongrass note emerges toward the finish. Give this 2-3 years in bottle for the aromatics to develop.
