Limited release, single-vineyard Chenin Blanc, from hand-selected grapes from the foothills of the majestic Kasteelberg Mountain, Kasteelberg Chenin Blanc embodies excellent craftsmanship that transforms the harsh Swartland terroir into the pinnacle of our winemakers’ art.
Made in a rich, full-bodied, wooded style, this Chenin Blanc was fermented and matured in French oak barrels. Together with the age-old tradition of Dry Land viticulture, it resulted in an elegant, aromatic and richly textured wine, with characteristics typical to Chenin Blanc grown under these conditions. Citrus, lemon zest, ripe apple and tropical flavours are only some of the flavours that charm the nose. The palate follows through with flavours of melon, a touch of spice and well-integrated wood for exceptional balance for a luxurious, lingering finish.
Just a few metres lower than Table Mountain, The Kasteelberg mountain range celebrates the discovery of Riebeek and the Kasteelberg mountains in 1661. Kasteelberg stands sentinel over the fertile valleys below. From the slopes of these mountains, hand-selected grapes are expertly crafted with care to produce rare and expressive wines.
