“Pure and crystalline, an ethereal expression of Chenin Blanc with lashings of ripe stone fruit, yellow plum and pear complemented by a saline minerality on the impressively persistent finish

Whilst their flagship Chenin is in contention for the most impressive wine we’ve tried this year this has to be one of the best value. Simply remarkable at under £17.”

INTRODUCTION

The Brookdale Estate, situated at the foot of the lofty Du Toitskloof Pass in Paarl, is a very impressive boutique winery owned by Englishman Tim Rudd and is planted with not only 25+ year old Chenin Blanc vines but also several other special Chenin Blanc blocks that are now over 35 years old and certified under the Old Vine Project as Heritage Vines.
