The Oddbins Take

Why isn’t Chenin Blanc as famous as Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc? More versatile than a Swiss Army knife, it’s used all over the world for sparkling, dry and sweet wines, it’s happy being oaked or unoaked and when it comes to food there’s very little you can’t match it with.

The honest truth is that Chenin Blanc isn’t always treated with the respect it deserves. But if you put it in the hands of an extraordinary winemaker who lives and breathes Chenin Blanc, then you can hear it sing. May we present Vinum Chenin Blanc, what we call simply “The Future”.

Matthew Jukes in The Daily Mail Weekend Magazine 14/12/13: "This wine might seem unassuming on first sip, but the more you go back to it the more it draws you in and you discover exceptional complexity and detail in the glass. With hints of white peach, meadow flowers and lime curd this is a devastatingly well made wine with expert, but careful use, of French oak barrels adding the magic. It would be stunning with Turkey, too, especially if you serve the Crispy cheese parsnips with parmesan alongside!”

Decanter, January 2015: "Crafted largely from unirrigated old bush vines, some of this wine was fermented in Burgundian barrels. There's peach and lemon on the nose, while the palate has an appealing weight, with floral notes and tangy acidity. The oak is well integrated, bringing a subtle creamy hint to the finish."

South African wine is a white dominated industry, but The Winery of Good Hope is trying to draw on the cultural and racial diversity of the country. They have become Black Economic Empowerment certified to help increase the number of black-owned wineries. The Vinum Africa Wines are one of their projects and use a highly specialised workforce focussed on a micro production of two truly great wines.
