Gabriëlskloof winery is in the Bot River ward, part of the greater Walker Bay region. Our winemaking philosophy is one of minimal intervention, only taking action where necessary. We believe this is the only way to give prominence to and reflect the terroir of the vineyards we work with.

About

The Chenin Blanc is part of our Gabriëlskloof Range, together with the Rosebud, Sauvignon Blanc, The Blend and Syrah. This range offers a selection of boutique-style wines that always over-deliver on quality and value.

Climate & Viticulture

The 2020 vintage was about two weeks earlier than previous years. Cool conditions during harvest made for fresh, crisp wines.

Vinification

The Chenin Blanc 2020 was fermented wild and aged in 85% old french oak barrels with the remainder undergoing fermentation and ageing in steel tanks.

Tasting note

On the nose – white peach, pear, almonds and wet stone. The palate is driven by vibrant acidity and mineral freshness with a long, lingering aftertaste. Best enjoyed at 13 ̊C. Drink in the next two years.
