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

With its hot, long summers and oceanic winds from both the west and the east, South Africa is something of a haven for a wide range of imported grape varietals. Since the mid-18th century, the country has been associated with some very fine wines made using complex and careful blending techniques, with one of the most famous and widely loved early examples being constructed from Pontac, Muscadel and Chenin Blanc varietals. Since those colonial days, the regions around Cape Town have proven again and again to be fantastic areas for producing interesting and delicious wines, with many of the best examples of Champagne style sparkling wines originating from these fertile lands. From the scorchingly hot regions of Orange Rivers, to the far cooler and temperate appellations in Walker Bay, South Africa has developed a booming wine industry responsible for many of the finest New World wines available anywhere across the globe.
