Joostenberg Estate “Die Agteros” Chenin Blanc 2019
Our oldest Chenin Blanc vineyard was used to make this wine. It was planted in 1982 and for the first 20 years its fruit was sent to the local co-op and used for rather modest dry white blends. To be honest it’s an ugly, gnarly looking vineyard and year after year we contemplated its removal, but as soon as we started making our own wine on the farm we recognized its quality. We now care for this vineyard lovingly every year. The name is derived from the Afrikaans saying “die agteros kom ook in die kraal” (the hind ox also gets there); the vineyard took a long time to prove itself and now it’s our favourite vineyard.
A complex array of aromas and flavours. Hints of baked apple, honey and flintstone. The palate is rich yet elegant and is marked but a subtle, creamy texture.
