From a top family winery, twice winner of the World's Best Chenin Trophy, this intensely fruity white shows all the quality you’d expect from Stellenbosch. Part cask fermented with wild yeast, it’s complex and serious with creamy lemony punch.

If you’re looking for a smart Chenin Blanc with amazing depth, this 2021 is bang on target. Established in 1928, Stellenrust is one of South Africa’s most successful family wineries. But this is much more than just an old school estate. This is a crazy passionate team of young winemakers. Together they work spectacular vineyards, in the heart of the renowned Stellenbosch Golden Triangle, where they produce modern, limit pushing wines. And Chenin is something of a speciality. Hence two Chenin Trophies. 88% of the old-vine fruit is fermented in stainless steel, while the remainder is put into oak to give a greater degree of complexity. Then five months on lees produces a creamy texture that makes the wine ideal to serve solo, or with chicken.
