Luddite, Chenin Blanc, Western Cape, South Africa, 2019


Some people describe Luddite as Niels Verburg contained in a glass; Niels is six foot four and when he smiles appears to be beaming an embrace in your direction. As a young winemaker traveling the world Niels confirmed his love for Shiraz when working a harvest in Australia but it was a winery in Chile that inspired his wine-making method ‘It was as if I’d gone back 20 years it was ramshackle chaotic but they had great fruit and passion and I’d never seen that quality of wine.’

Rich, golden straw hue. Spicy, touch of roasted almonds and Star Anise. After a while nose opens up to give hints of white peach. Clean refreshing entry. Saline and nutty with notes of pears, spice and cinnamon. Long lean finish with a hint of peachy sweetness.
