2021 Alheit Vineyards Cartology
The 2021 vintage is made up 90% Chenin blanc and 10% Sémillon. The Chenin comes from old parcels in the Skurfberg, Perdeberg, Upper Blaauwklippen, False Bay and Tygerberg. The Sémillon comes from the famous old La Colline block in Franschhoek.
The nose is wonderful: kumquat citrus, sweet oatmeal and honey, maybe elderflower. The palate is fine and bright, reminiscent of salty/sweet candied lemon, great length.
