Stellenrust Heritage Collection Chenin Blanc 2019

Award Winner

90 Points – 2019 GB

Platter's South African Wine Guide
4 Stars – 2019 ZA

Chenin Blanc is South Africa’s star white grape – and this fresh release from Stellenrust is a delicious example of the wines it can produce. It was crafted in the premium Stellenbosch region – often called South Africa’s answer to Napa Valley. According to Master of Wine Tim Atkin, “Stellenbosch consistently produces the greatest number of the Cape’s finest wines.” And Atkin was especially impressed with this 2019 bottling, awarding it a 90 point score.

But let’s not forget the estate. Established in 1928, Stellenrust is one of South Africa’s most acclaimed family-run wineries. They grow their Chenin Blanc high up in the Bottelary Hills, an area renowned for its cool climate and sea breezes that impart fresh, intensely concentrated flavors to the fruit. The Heritage Collection honors the family’s winemaking history – and this elegant white is a proud addition.

“Stellenrust in Stellenbosch does amazing things with Chenin Blanc,” raves Wine magazine. They went on to rate a previous release of this gem 91 points, as did The Wine Advocate, who wrote: “plenty of white peach and tangerine notes on the nose, upfront and bold, and there is nothing wrong with that. The palate is fresh on the entry with crisp acidity, lively with lemon thyme notes infusing the citrus fruit. It sports good body and depth on the finish – a very delicious Chenin Blanc … what a bargain!”

A perfect aperitif, or a fine match for shellfish.
