The Huguenot Chenin Blanc from the award-winning Franschhoek cellar is the wine that sparked our customers craze for bright, zesty South African whites. With its zippy lemon and juicy tropical fruits, it’s a hit every vintage – has been since 2012!
Recently sales for South African white wines have skyrocketed. That’s partly thanks to this humble Chenin Blanc. Since its debut release in 2012, customers have adored it making it our most re-ordered Cape Chenin. It’s from an award-winning cellar in Franschhoek. One to pay a visit “if you’re keen to check out authentic Franschhoek flavours”, says Decanter. The name ‘The Huguenot’ pays tribute to this area’s history, also known as the ‘French corner’ after persecuted French Huguenots settled here in 1688. With them they brought traditional French winemaking techniques and planted vines in Franschhoek’s picturesque, lush valley. Since, it’s grown a reputation as a premium winemaking region. This is a crisp, fruity white with ripe tropicals.
"Excellent wine, great value. One of the few alternatives as well-received as the favoured Sauvignons"
