Traversing the beautiful vineyards of the Western Cape I have the good fortune to often taste small and unique parcels of wine. A winemaker creates blends to accentuate certain qualities or add complexity to a wine. Forager is such a blend, assembled from selected grapes, each with the own special character, ‘foraged’ from various vineyards, barrels and batches to create a distinctive wine in which the whole is greater than the sums of its parts.
FORAGER WHITE (CHENIN BLANC/GRENACHE BLANC)
A gorgeous blend of Chenin blanc and Grenache blanc. Ripe tropical fruit and peach & apricot flavours from Chenin blanc bolstered by fresh aromas of pear, lime and green apple from the Grenache blanc. The fruit is rounded by very subtle oak. Long and persistent finish. This wine can be enjoyed now but will reward cellaring for up to 2 years
