Alheit Hemelrand Vine Garden 2018
This is a slow ripening site, resulting in full flavor and high acidity. This wine exemplifies the push and pull between those two elements. The nose is exotic, the palate is bracing.
Blend: 26% Chenin Blanc, 26% Chardonnay, 23% Roussanne, 21% Verdelho, 4% Muscat
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
An enticing, silky white, with papaya and lilac flavors emerging from the core, framed by coriander, yellow apple and sel gris notes. Hints of heather and cardamom add nuance, while bracing acidity keeps everything focused. Complex, but crowd-pleasing. Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Roussanne, Verdelho and Muscat.
