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. ... More details

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.

The 2017 Hemelrand Vine Garden is comprised of Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Roussanne, Verdelho and Muscat. As you might imagine, there is a lot going on here with so many different flavor profiles coming from many different grapes. Some of the aroma profiles overlap, while others clash a touch. The wine is made in such a way that this isn't apparent at first. Apples, pears and pineapple give way to limey citrus and waxy and nutty florals. On the palate, the greenness from the Chenin Blanc and Verdelho fight with Muscat and Chardonnay. Texturally, nothing is lacking here, but it just doesn't pop like the other whites in the range. The wine has good acidity, is food-friendly and has a long finish. 405 cases were made.

Country: South Africa

As geographically diverse country, with everything from lush green valleys to areas of arid desert, mountainsides and river estuaries, South Africa unsurprisingly produces a huge range of excellent wines. Regions such as the Breede River Valley consistently impress with their Semillon wines and the lush, fruity Ruby Cabernets grown and processed here, and the cooler region of Overberg is attracting much attention as a result of their silky Pinot Noir bottles. However, all over the oceanic tip of this fascinating country, traditional methods dating back over three hundred years are combining with modern technologies to produce some of the finest examples of New World wines to be found anywhere on the globe.
