Wine White Chenin

The Anchorman Chenin Blanc


Winemaker, Razvan Macici, has created a selection of individually named, limited-edition, gourmet wines to honour some of the major figures in the South African winemaking history who have been a source of inspiration to him and formed an integral part of the history of Nederburg. They call it the ‘Heritage Heroes’ collection and each label is specially designed with the person who it honours in mind.

This wine is in honour of the founder of Nederburg, Philippus Wolvaart, who bought the farm in 1791 and planted Chenin Blanc amongst other varietals. He had the vision and courage to tame a wilderness and to grow great wine.

The grapes for this wine were sourced from old bush-vine vineyards in Darling, Durbanville and Paarl. The grapes went through an interesting vinification in that different parcels were treated in different ways to ensure richness, yet freshness. The final product shows real complexity with notes of peach, apricot, oranges and bruised apple and provide super drinking pleasure.
