The Blacksmith ‘Vin Blanc’ 2017
Tremayne Smith, responsible for the winemaking at Fable Mountain Vineyards since late 2016, has been making tiny batches under his own label The Blacksmith for several years now. Sourced fruit, picked early, minimal intervention and little sulphur make his wines something special. Mostly exported, we have a small allocation of the local supply for you right here.
His Chenin Blanc is right up there with the red blend he makes as one of our favourite releases this year. Layered, intense yet not at all rich or heavy, it’s an intellectual wine worthy of praise.
