The white wine
If you’re looking for a ‘Grand Cru’ Chenin Blanc with lavish richness, this 2021 is the real deal. Established in 1928, Stellenrust is one of South Africa’s most successful family-owned wineries, with extensive vineyards. As with many Cape estates, Chenin is something of a speciality. But few estates lavish quite as much care as this wine has enjoyed. First, the fruit is hand harvested from 56-year-old bush vines from their Bottelary vineyard. So quality and intensity are the finest. Then the juice is fermented with wild yeasts in oak barrels or special concrete egg fermenters. All this adds many layers of richness and complexity. A year on lees adds even more – the wine is "seriously a two-bottle wine". Ideal with duck or salmon.
