Wildeberg Terroirs Chenin Blanc, WO Paarl 2022

SBO510

Wildeberg is our small farm in Franschhoek. Wildeberg Terroirs is an expression of the most exciting vineyard blocks we work with in the wider Coastal Region, in this case 45+ year old bush vines from Paarl.

Production

Chenin Blanc from selected old, dry farmed bush vines, grown on Table Mountain granite outcrops that surface in Paarl’s otherwise deep sandy loams. The 2022 comes 100% from Eenzaamheid (meaning loneliness), planted in 1977. Hand-harvested and naturally fermented back at the farm at Wildeberg, then aged for 12 months in new and older French barrels. As little work as possible is required in order to capture the site-specific energy of this fruit.

Tasting notes

A broad, savoury, complex nose with ripe stonefruit and citrus, aromas of straw, saffron and baked earth. Generous and textural with apricot, green plum and grapefruit, the richness of fruit balanced by tangy freshness and a taut, mineral seam on the long, focused finish.

Food match

Grilled fish and white meats. Also great with asparagus.
