    2021 Trust Your Gut Chenin Blanc

    I sourced grapes from special vineyards to use in this blend, which I believe is a great example of a wine that is made up of components that together are greater than the sum of its individual parts. Sometimes you just have to trust your gut to tell you what the right move is — and all the pictures on the label are in some way suggestive of that instinct. Like a compass provides direction to a sailor or how a bee instinctively knows where it has to go to find pollen and make honey. The stamp is to emphasize our South African heritage.

    2022 Natte Valleij, Axle Chenin Blanc

    Being a family business here at Natte Valleij Wines, you make wines for each other. My wife loves Chenin blanc, so I decided to make her one. These dryland bush vines planted in 1985 and grown in Darling are an epitome of old South African bush vine Chenin blanc. Wines are fermented naturally in seasoned barrels and aged sur lie for 9 months. Ripe pear and spice, balanced of by a beautiful minerality, has you thinking of the start of a Quentin Tarantino movie!

    Description

    A Jancis Robinson MW Curated Case of South African Chenin rated 17 points and above in their recent summary of SA White wines based on a number of SA tastings during the course of the year.

    “Jancis and I tasted more than 250 wines between us, and our scores across the board are so consistently high that, in a line-up like this, 16 starts to look low, and 17 looks ordinary. Which is not the case. Our scoring scale hasn’t suffered from inflation. South African wine producers are simply doubling down in quality…Chenin continues to shine as brightly as ever, perhaps even more so as producers across the board seem to be abandoning new oak, embracing spontaneous fermentation, playing with a bit of skin contact, and using old oak and larger-format barrels. Even the best Chenin producers in the Loire must, by now, be standing on the sidelines, watching in envy.” – Tamlyn Currin.
