Painted Wolf The Den Chenin Blanc is a fresh and vibrant Chenin with a creamy texture. Notes of apples, pears and lemon with a long layered finish.
Chenin Blanc is harvested from a number of blocks on farms in the Swartland region, both irrigated and dry farmed vines of 20 to 40 years old. Finished with around 10% Chardonnay
Jeremy and Emma Borg founded Painted Wolf Wines to create unique wines from a small number of growers in some of South Africa’s prime sites, including Paarl, Swartland and Stellenbosch – low-yielding areas which are mostly unirrigated and farmed organically or with minimal organic outputs.
They called their company Painted Wolf, after the endangered African Wild Dog. The Painted Wolf ‘pack’ is their community of talented individuals who bring the best available grapes, technical and practical skills, resulting a range of delicious, authentic and satisfying wines.
Five percent of Painted Wolf’s profits from UK sales are donated to Tusk Trust, which not only funds projects to protect wildlife, particularly endangered species, but also helps to alleviate poverty through sustainable development and education amongst rural communities which live alongside wildlife.
