Dry Chenin Blanc (<5g/l or up to 9g/l if TA <2g/l lower)


This wine that forms part of the Breedekloof Makers Collaboration, celebrates family, tradition and a generational love for wine making. Beautiful aromas of white pear, generous golden delicious apples, orange peel & hints of lime zest can be found on the nose.  These aromatics follow through on to the palate, with ripe melon, gorgeous orange marmalade, and stewed peaches.  Matured in French oak for a period of 9 months has resulted in an exquisitely balanced wine with a glorious lengthy finish.

The lively acidity and fuller bodied mouthfeel of this wine makes it a dream to pair with an array of dishes – think creamy risotto or fatty pork belly.
