Deftly done.

Wade Metzer of the boutique label Metzer Family Wines has managed to get his hands on a single vineyard of Helderberg Chenin Blanc planted in 1964 and the resulting wine is immensely pleasing.

Fermentation occurred spontaneously and maturation lasted seven months in French oak, 10% new. The nose is subtle but complex with notes of naartjie, stone fruit, hay, yellow earth, spice and some yeasty complexity. The palate displays good fruit concentration with coated acidity and a savoury finish. It’s a very well balanced wine that reveals more and more the longer it spends in your glass. Price: R240 a bottle.

Editor’s rating: 93/100.
