Alheit Vineyards Hemelrand Vine Garden 2018

R295

“It’s gratifying to see this wine go from strength to strength as the vineyard matures. The proportions of Roussanne, Chardonnay, Chenin, Verdelho and Muscat change every year as the vineyard dictates. What grows in the field goes into the bottle.Hemelrand is a very cool site and it really shows in the wine: complex slow ripened flavours and texture given shape and direction by driving acidity.Very long. This
wine continues to scare us and delight us in equal measure. Most of the barrels don’t finish fermentation until the summer following the vintage. This can be a bit scary for a winemaker, but then you taste the wine and it makes you grin like a fool.” – Chris Alheit
