About this wine

Kaapzicht’s The 1947 Chenin Blanc is one of South Africa’s greatest expressions of Chenin Blanc, with only 900 bottles released of this old vine rare gem. The vineyard from which it hails was planted in 1947, making it the second oldest Chenin vineyard in South Africa.  Notes of orange zest, quince, flint and oyster shell – the youthful flavour profile is elegant, yet very broad and powerful. Seamless fruit flows onto the palate that also offers a mineral, saline grip to finish. Certainly a Chenin that will develop added nauances with a year or two of additional bottle maturation.

Add to this list Stellenbosch in South Africa and the picture is complete. A waxy, citrus and cream styled white variety with stunning acidity and natural balance, it can produce deeply-flavoured wines from dry through to botrytis-affected sweet styles. It is a natural in every sense and in the hands of the greatest growers in South Africa shows the shimmering potential of the Rainbow Nation on the world stage."
