Aromatic, focused, and rich chenin blend from a thoughtful young South African.

Stellenbosch, South Africa

Young Gavin Bruwer is the man behind B Vintners, with an assist from his older cousin Bruwer Raats. They're based in the dramatically mountainous seaside region of Stellenbosch in South Africa, where they make a tidy little range of exciting wines. The idea behind this bottling was to use the original varieties that were brought to the Cape by Dutch settlers in the 17th century, and until recent years, were the most important in the country. It blends tart, structured chenin blanc with a hefty dose of rich, textured semillon and a dash of two muscats with their beautiful floral aromas. This was naturally barrel-fermented and aged in old oak for a year. This wine is ripe and luxurious without seeming cloying or heavy, with yellow apple, ginger and nectarine, and an herby floral note from the muscat.
