Roodekrantz is a partnership between former Windmeul export manager Marius Burger, son Marius Junior and winemaker Danie Morkel that focuses on securing old vine parcels from across the winelands. The 2021 set of wines, all from Chenin Blanc, have just been released, and once again they are impressive (winemaking is the same throughout – inoculation with a commercial yeast so that the fermentation process doesn’t obscure terroir, maturation lasting 10 months in older oak).

Categories: , SKU: hub-10311355-1-DP-STOCK-N

Then aged in barrels until December when it’s bottled. VINEYARD INFORMATION Planted in 1975, Agter – Paarl. Soil is a combination of clay and decomposed Malmesbury rocks/shale.
Grapes were handpicked early mornings over a 14 day period.
