DIE OU BOSSTOK CHENIN BLANC 2023

Understated peach and nectarine fruit with a light brush of spice and elderflower. Those same stone fruit flavours can be found on the palate with ripe Golden Delicious apple and pear notes as well as the spice highlight. Impressive palate weight and density with a lees note adding body and breadth. Balanced, rounded and structured but also fresh and lively due to good acid levels. Complex and long.

Old Vine Project

Old vines are a phenomenon that has captured the attention of the global wine world. Wines that are made from old vines are a tribute to the grower's love of his or her land. They exist because of the people who touched and tended them over many years. In South Africa, producers can certify old vine vineyards and wines with the Old Vine Project (OVP).

South Africa has the advantage that our vineyard plant dates can be verified by the South African Wine Industry Information Systems (SAWIS) back to 1900. This extraordinary database has been instrumental in the existence of the OVP and its guarantee of traceability.

Members of the OVP apply for the Certified Heritage Vineyards seal for wine made from vineyards of 35 years or older, together with the planting date. This is a guarantee to the consumer of authentic wines made according to the OVP viticultural and winemaking guidelines.

The journey to document South Africa’s old vines was started in 2002 by vineyard manager, Rosa Kruger. The OVP was formalised in 2016 with seed funding from the Rupert Foundation. Today, with traction gained and awareness spreading, more wines are being launched to augment the OVP's footprint.

Aromatics of stone fruit with a nutty marzipan flavour and hints of oak are apparent too. The palate reflects the time the components of this blend spent in wood with a broad, creamy spiciness that complements the peach, quince, and gooseberry fruit flavours. Clean, structured, and powerful, the wine is kept in check with an acidic freshness. Lovely texture with good palate weight—the wine promises and delivers an elegant, creamy, long, and enjoyable mouthful.

Complex bouquet of fruitcake, cedar, cocoa and a perfumed whiff of dried lavender. Broad, fleshy and succulent with all of that the nose promises being delivered on the palate. Spice sprinkled cedar with rich dark fruitcake flavour. Wonderfully soft, rounded and silky palate that shows cohesion and refinement. Impressive density and concentration that doesn’t overwhelm. Nor does the oak used in the maturation of this impressive blend. Plush, comfortable and eminently rewarding with a lingering dry tail.

Picture of L'ORMARINS PRIVATE CUVÉE 2015
Pale lemon colour, bright and clear, with a hypnotic steady stream of vigorous, fine bubbles. The nose offers up subtle orange blossom with marmalade and oyster shell nuances mingling with baked sourdough bread. Vibrant, energetic fizz with grapefruit, lemon and lime vivacity in the mouth. A trace of salinity is present too, adding to the enjoyment of the crunchy zip and vitality. It then segues into a richer, creamier, genteel and silky smooth mouthful of lees, toast and baked bread tinged with a twist of citrus zest. The maritime notes of briny sea air and oyster shell are present too. Succulent and fresh but also taut, crisp and dry. Lovely tension and restraint but with power and generosity too. Seamless integration and marvelous refinement and persistence of flavour.

Lime, peach and nectarine vivacity on the nose. That brightness continues on the palate with crisp nectarine, white peach and quince characters matched by lively balancing acidity. Light bodied and refreshing with a defined, dry finish. The fruit memory lingers.
