Val du Charron is situated in Wellington not far from the Bain’s Kloof Pass. The story goes that during the 19th century a horse with four white legs could traverse the pass toll-free and hence the name of this wine, which contains four white varieties – 47% Chenin Blanc, 41% Sauvignon Blanc, 7% Viognier and 5% Semillon.
Citrus and peach plus a hint of waxiness. Good fruit expression, relatively bright acidity before a piquant finish. Nicely assembled and offers good value given the price of R69 a bottle from the farm.
