Professional Wine Reviews for Alheit Vineyards Hemelrand Vine Garden 2017

Rated 91 by Wine Spectator
Ripe, yet vibrant and zesty, with spice and mineral details lacing the flavors of persimmon and Asian pear. Intense acidity keeps everything intact and gives this a bit of firmness midpalate, where the mouthwatering, mineral-infused finish takes over. Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Roussanne, Verdelho and Muscat. Best from 2020 through 2025. 410 cases made, 100 cases imported.
Rated 90 by Vinous Media
From vines planted in 2010, the 2017 Hemelrand Vine Garden was matured in old neutral barrels and cement egg. It has a clean, pure bouquet of lemon curd, albumen and light yellow flowers. The palate is well balanced, with a taut line of acidity, and quite saline in the mouth. The sharp, slightly flinty finish oddly reminds me of a mature Chablis. Very fine.

Winery Alheit Vineyards

Country: South Africa

Perhaps the most famous and well respected of all the wine regions in South Africa is that of Constantia, which holds many of the oldest and most traditional wineries in the country. Here, the temperate climate receives the Atlantic winds which cool the vineyards, and the fertile soil allows the grapes to grow to full ripeness, resulting in highly flavorful wines which are enjoyed around the world. Whilst Sauvignon Blanc varietals make up the most widely exported wines of this region, the rest of the country produces a huge and impressive range of wines, made up from varietals native to many different European countries. From excellent Champagne style sparkling wines, to aromatic fortified examples, fruity reds and refreshing whites, South Africa continues to impress and surprise, with modern techniques and technologies leading the way and producing exceptional results.
