Waterford Estate, Old Vine Project Chenin Blanc 2018

(2 reviews)

From vines planted in 1966, this maiden vintage shows wonderful purity and elegance with flavours of peach, honey and pithy stone fruit.

Very well-textured, displaying fruit complexity and creaminess on the palate.

Description

Waterford has been making Chenin Blanc since its establishment under the Pecan Stream label.

For the last 4 years there has been great effort to secure old vine Chenin Blanc grapes sourced from the Stellenbosch region. This enables us to make world-class wines under the Waterford label.

2018 is the maiden vintage of this wine. Showing wonderful purity and elegance. Flavours of peach, honey and pithy stone fruit. Very well textured pallet with fruit complexity and creaminess.

    “Waterford buy old-vine fruit from sites in Bottelary and Devon Valley to make this OVP Chenin Blanc. Fermented in a combination of concrete and old wood, it’s a textured, pithy, elegant white with good structure and flavours of greengage, pear and what Mark Le Roux calls a ‘positive bitterness'”

    “Drops ‘Stellenbosch’ from name in 2019. From 3 old vineyards (1966, 1972, 1984), fermented/aged in concrete ‘egg’ & old barrels. Charms with elegant intensity & purity. Quince, stonefruit & honeyed almond; rich breadth & texture, drawn into elegant harmony by thread of acidity.”
