The quality and concentration of the fruit is testament to the character of these magnificent old vines and the estate’s unique fingerprint of terroir and climate.
Welgegund Heritage Wines Chenin Blanc 2017 Tasting notes
From vineyards planted in 1974, the low-yielding 2017 vintage provided exceptional fruit, with high concentration, balanced by ample finesse and purity. Expect layered flavours, great depth, a textured mouthfeel, creamy oak and vibrant summer fruit – citrus, stone fruits, pineapple and lime notes – complemented by a hint of white blossoms. The 2017 vintage has superb storage potential and is sure to age gracefully.
