L’Ormarins Die Ou Bosstok Chenin Blanc 2018
By Christian Eedes, 4 August 2021
Vines for the L’Ormarins Die Ou Bostok Chenin Blanc 2018 have a history in more ways than one. Originally planted on the Paardeberg in 1964, they were transplanted to the Franschhoek property in 2007 and 2008 to avoid uprooting.
Winemaking for the 2018 vintage involved fermentation and maturation lasting seven months in an old foudre, the nose shows lemon and peach plus some pronounced waxy character while the palate is rich and full with a creamy texture. For all that fruit density, there’s also lovely tangy acidity while the finish is nicely savoury. Price: R355 a bottle.
CE’s rating: 92/100.
