DE MEYE CHENIN BLANC 2015

“Ok so this must be my favourite all day drinking wine. Phil and I have spent so many hours at our local side walk café drinking bottle after bottle. Your palatte just doesn’t tire of it. Its well balanced acids and fruity taste leave you feeling refreshed. It feels like the coca cola of white wine.

Chenin Blanc also known as Pineau de la Loire is the most widely planted cultivar in South Africa. In the 1960’s a brand called Lieberstein (a semi sweet version of Chenin blanc) enjoyed notoriety as the single biggest selling brand in the world.” – Mathew

Winemaker Marcus Milners Tasting Notes

Aroma: Tropical fruit aromas of peach, winter melon.  Flinty mineral hints, backed by an undertone of green pepper.

MARKLEW CHARDONNAY 2010 (sold out)

“When Haidee gave me the news that the Chardonnay 2009 had won a double gold at the annual Veritas awards I was not surprised. It’s rich straw colour conjures up images of hedonistic times. The aroma and palette follow through on this theme. If you’re looking to impress your mother in-law this will do the trick. But you have to be able to part with it first. Yummy.” – Mathew

Winemaker Kajo Maleks notes: Wonderfully rich and indulgent with hints of citrus and butterscotch. Chardonnay 2009 is drinking well now, but can be drunk for 2-4 years after vintage.

Climate/Terroir: Mediterranian. 12 year old vines facing South East.

Soil: Red Hutton

Vinification/Maturation: Picked and vinified from a selection of rows out of a top-performing dry land block of vineyard. Grapes were barrel fermented at a low temperature to ensure fruit flavours on both nose and palate. MLF  was 100% completed. 20% New French barrels, 80% 2nd and 3rd fill French barrels. Barrels were stirred once a week to add a buttery full bodied complexity.
