Cape Heights Chenin Blanc, WO Western Cape 2023


Boutinot South Africa

A ripe, honeyed style of Chenin Blanc with approachable citrus and white peach characters. Good concentration and taut acidity make this capable of improving with some bottle age.

Meet the producer

Boutinot South Africa is driven by our passion for discovery and desire to capture the real essence of South Africa in...



This Chenin Blanc is sourced from vines grown on sandy loams over granite bedrock, the classic Cape soils type. No irrigation is used in the vineyards and very little crop control is needed due to the age of the vines naturally restricting yield. Part of the blend is wild yeast fermented and a tiny percentage in old barrels. The wine is left on fine lees for an extended period for greater palate weight and mouthfeel.

Tasting notes

This wine displays classic baked apple and zippy citrus aromas with ripe stone fruit on the palate balanced by crisp acidity. Extended lees contact gives this great value wine some real weight and character.

Food match

A great partner to grilled fish, chicken and salads. Wonderful with Cape Malay curries, spicy mango salads and brightly flavoured pan-Asian cuisine.
