The Stellenbosch Chenin Blanc is a relatively new addition to the Rustenberg portfolio. Though Chenin Blanc has not been planted on the estate since the late 1980’s, there is an abundance of superb bush vine Chenin Blanc in Stellenbosch, which we discovered in sourcing fruit for the Straw Wine each vintage. Grapes were hand harvested from 4 different bush vine blocks, 20 to 35 years old, in the Bottelary sub-region of Stellenbosch. This wine is a Rustenberg take on a varietal synonymous with South Africa.
Aromas of pineapple and yellow pear follow through to a crisp, textured palate complemented by characters of citrus.
