Chenin 2020-e1-lowres

Swerwer, Chenin Blanc, Swartland, South Africa 2020


The vines used have an average age of about 40 years. These dry-land vineyards were established on the granitic soils of the mountain slopes. Grapes were carefully hand- harvested in the early morning to escape the mid-day scorch. The grape’s flavours are intense and well textured but freshness and acidity is the key to create a well-balanced wine in typical Swartland conditions.

The 2020 vintage resulted in generously rich Chenin blanc wines. An invite of white and yellow stone fruit blossoms and herbal notes leads to a broader palat. Textured and layered with quince, peach, apple and pear, with a slightly savoury touch. A softer acidity focuses flavours and lengthens the palate, still finishing with freshness. It is a well-balanced wine, typical of place and vintage. It can be enjoyed fresh or aged to become even more complex and special.
