Joostenberg Chenin Blanc
This wine has replaced the Family Blend White in our range. Is a fresh white wine made for family and friends. It’s a wine for any occasion and drinks well with or without food.
A fresh, elegant white wine with distinctive apple and tropical fruit aromas and flavours.
The Small Batch Collection wines are made in miniscule quantities and allow us to explore various winemaking techniques, grape varietals and vineyards. Sometimes it’s about pushing the winemaking boundaries a bit (the revolutionary process) and sometimes it’s all about figuring out the best way to capture the pure essence of a specific vineyard.
Roussanne is quite rare in the Cape and this is a particularly small bottling……264 bottles.

Our oldest Chenin Blanc vineyard was used to make this wine. It was planted in 1982 and for the first 20 years its fruit was sent to the local co-op and used for rather modest dry white blends. To be honest it’s an ugly, gnarly looking vineyard and year after year we contemplated its removal, but as soon as we started making our own wine on the farm we recognized its quality. We now care for this vineyard lovingly every year. The name is derived from the Afrikaans saying “die agteros kom ook in die kraal” (the hind ox also gets there)…..the vineyard took a long time to prove itself and now it’s our favourite vineyard.
