Buy Indaba Chenin Blanc

Non-discountable item
Chenin Blanc is South Africa’s most widely plantedvarietal and the Cape’s signature white. This fresh, vibrant version offers luscious flavors of tropical fruit, melon and honeyed pear, backed by bright citrus flavors. Lively peppery notes and an underlying mineral character shine through on the finish.

Wine maker notes
The challenging 2010 vintage was characterized by very low yields (due to heavy rains and strong winds early in the growing season) but high quality, with bright acidity and intense, concentrated flavors in the grapes. Mild weather in the early stages of ripening followed by a hot January resulted in an earlier than usual harvest.

Technical notes
Grapes were sourced from select vineyard sites in Stellenbosch, Paarl and Swartland, characterized by soils of Table Mountain sandstone and decomposed Dolomite granite. Approximately 70% of the vines are low-yielding dry farmed bush vines, with an average age of 20+ years. A small component hails from 54-year-old bush vines.
