Andersbrook Chenin Blanc
Andersbrook Chenin Blanc is a fresh, dry Chenin with orchard fruit and citrus aromas with soft, delicate orchard fruit on the palate well balanced by crisp acidity.

Andersbrook Chenin Blanc is made for us by Boutinot South Africa. Boutinot South Africa is driven by a passion for discovery and desire to capture the real essence of South Africa in every bottle. It was the simple love of Loire Chenin Blanc that first led them to South Africa in 1994, where they pioneered the ‘wild yeast’ ferment style that has now been adopted by many producers in this region. Since then they have been exploring the country’s amazing vineyards to make fabulous wines from specific sites and plots that scream location, location, terroir!! Their winemaking team is headed up by Marinda Kruger-van Eck, who confesses “We put as much, if not more, thought and effort into making our entry level wines as our premium ones”. The key is knowing the characteristics of each plot, understanding the benefits each grape can bring, and using this information to break rules and push boundaries. “I use a combination of my knowledge and love of nature and science to create versatile, expressive and food-friendly wines from this wonderful country”.

Sourced from old bush vines from Paarl and Drakenstein. No irrigation is used in the vineyards and very little crop control is needed due to the age of the vines naturally restricting yield. All grapes are harvested by hand. Produced from only free run juice, part of the blend is naturally fermented and a tiny percentage in old barrels. The wine is left on fine lees for an extended period for greater palate weight and mouthfeel.
