Wildeberg Terroirs Chenin Blanc 2020
By Christian Eedes, 19 July 2021
Wildeberg is the Franschhoek farm owned by UK wine company Boutinot and Terroirs the name given to wines from special sites across the Western Cape.
The Terroirs Chenin Blanc features grapes from a 1977 Paarl vineyard, winemaking spontaneous fermentation and maturation lasting 12 months in new and older oak.
The nose shows hay, citrus, stone fruit, flinty reduction and some “wet wool” character while the palate is rich and thick textured – great depth of fruit, driving acidity and a savoury finish. If you like your Chenin to have some va-va-voom, then this is for you. Approximate retail price: R260 a bottle.
CE’s rating: 93/100.
