Bright, textural stuff from old, unirrigated bush vines in the Coastal region grown on sandy soils over granite bedrock.
Ripe peach and tropical fruit on the nose with fresh citrus notes. Honeyed and textured on the palate with crisp acidity and hints of mandarin and lychee leading to a bright, juicy finish.
Chenin is the backbone grape varietal of South Africa – it’s the most profusely planted variety in our country and is closely associated to our wine-making identity. To capture the true sense of place and terroir, we’ve made this wine a 100% unoaked Chenin Blanc. Fermenting only in stainless steel ensures the freshness, character and liveliness of the wine is maintained. To tame some of this energy and add more complexity and depth to the final wine, I’ve kept it on its fine lees for approximately nine months. This also adds to the lush mouthfeel and keeps the wine fresher for longer.”
Wild House is a lifestyle range which reflects a place of raw energy, a weather-beaten hut exposed to the storm-swept slopes of the Cape's mountains. Inspired by the ever-shifting views of the landscape and weather from each aspect of the house, we crafted this range of wines to reflect the land we call home.
Alan's Personal Notes
"WOW - and WOW!! A beautiful, soft, easy-drinking Chenin. Not the most complex but full of fresh clean pineapple aromas and fruit with great balancing acidity!! Incredibly well balanced and appealing for the affordable price tag!!"
