Why do we love this wine?

55 year old chenin blanc vines aren’t a dime a dozen, especially when matched to the fabled Firgrove subregion in Stellenbosch. South Africans scramble for such a site, and Wade Metzer managed to secure this vineyard for his tiny family project.

Picked on two dates to get the perfect balance of chenin’s acid and texture, it’s a delight. Wild fermentation and seasoned French oak enhance depth and character without distracting from its purity. All stone fruit, spice and just the right amount of rounded, biscuity complexity and a savoury element that takes to straight to the seaside - incidentally, where the vineyard’s planted. This is a wine that you can smash, particularly with a plate of soft cheeses or even a North African tagine with apricots - a bit of north meets south can’t be bad.
