Laurens Campher 2016
In the Vineyard
This wine is made from meticulously sourced grapes from different sites and slopes. Vineyards vary in age from 10 – 15 years old. The Chenin Blanc is from an old north facing bush vine block with low yields and good fruit purity.
In the Cellar
It is a blend of 40% Chenin Blanc, 29% Sauvignon Blanc, 29% Verdelho and 2% Viognier. 20% of the wine was fermented in first fill barrels and the rest was second and third fill 500 litre French Oak barrels for a period of 10 months in total.
A seamless blend of four varietals to create a uniquely South African wine honouring one of the country’s wine pioneers. Lively fresh lemon and lime notes from the Chenin and Sauvignon Blanc are given added interest with fragrant floral hints from the Verdelho and Viognier components. On the palate, the wine is elegant and complex with flavours of honeysuckle, lime marmalade and fresh almonds, all wrapped in creamy oak. Zippy acidity runs through the wine until the eminently satisfying, lengthy finish.
This off-dry wine is best savoured with creamy chicken dishes as well as mild, aromatic spicy dishes such as curries.
Can be enjoyed now or up to five years from now.
