Crushing On: Perdeberg The Classic Collection Chenin Blanc

Words: Crush

Located between Malmesbury and Durbanville, in the Agter Paarl area, the Perdeberg district encompasses five different microclimates that produce unique and varied wines.

Perdeberg Winery, named for the Cape Mountain Zebra that were prolific in the area, have been pressing grapes since 1942.

Wines of Excellence

Perdeberg Cellar’s primary mission is to create wines of excellence and difference. And, what you may not know, is that they produce 8 different styles of Chenin Blanc and have been dubbed ‘the home of Chenin Blanc’.

Crushing on: Classic Collection Chenin Blanc

Perdeberg’s The Classic Collection Chenin Blanc is made in an elegant and fruit driven style.

This wine has a beautiful light straw colour; notes of tropical fruit and litchi fills the glass. The flavours follow through onto the palate ending with a moderate acidity and finish fresh.

On Point, On Price

This awarded wine over delivers on both quality and price; at just R43 a bottle (online from Perdeberg) it is an absolute steal.

The 2018 vintage was awarded Gold Michelangelo, Gold Wine Awards, Gold Vitis Vinefera and Silver Veritas – this shows the winemaking team’s passion for Chenin Blanc.
