This one is for the real geeks and Chenin Blanc freaks, old vine bush grown Chenin in the back blocks of Swartland on a steep slope at elevation. Eben Sadie has really made a name for his wines of structure and ethereal texture.

This Skurfberg is a single varietal wine as part of his Ouwingerdreeks (old vine in Afrikaans) project that is all about the preservation and revitalisation of old vineyards around the cape that will go toe to toe with many a famous wine in the Loire.

Pomacious fruit, honeycomb, acacia, cinnamon scroll and melon all combine with pure chalky teaxture and mineral acidity that frames this up for an exceedingly long finish. Elevage in old barrels lets the sandstone of the mountain do the talking and its quite a story it has to tell.
