Artisons Seriesrare The Mothership Chenin Blanc 2018
By Christian Eedes, 12 December 2019
Artisons is a joint venture between Stellenrust winemaker Tertius Boshoff and viticulturist Kobie van der Westhuizen which sees them making limited release wines from vineyards of note.
Grapes for The Mothership Chenin Blanc 2018 come from a 1964 Stellenbosch block on granite, vinification taking place in oak foudre and concrete egg. The nose shows top notes of hay and dried herbs before pear, white peach, lemon plus a hint of leesy complexity. The palate is medium bodied and well-proportioned with a nice energy about it – good fruit definition and driving acidity, some spicy bite to the finish. Approximate retail price: R510 a bottle.
CE’s rating: 95/100.
