Gabriëlskloof Chenin Blanc



Winemaker’s Notes:

The Chenin Blanc is part of our Gabriëlskloof Range, together with the Rosebud, Sauvignon Blanc, The Blend and Syrah. This range offers a selection of boutique-style wines that always over-deliver on quality and value

This harvest stood out for consistent cooler weather throughout the growing and ripening period, leading to slower ripening and increased flavour development. The Chenin Blanc was fermented wild and aged in 85% old French oak barrels, with the remainder undergoing fermentation and ageing in steel tanks.

A complex nose involving green citrus, white peach and jasmine with a full palate showing key lime pie, lemon curd and golden delicious apples. A leesy, salted macadamia mouthfeel sets up a long finish with a lingering, meringue-like creaminess. Freshness from zesty green apple skin acidity cuts keenly against the decadent flavour notes. Best enjoyed at 13˚C. Drink in the next two years



Gabrielskloof Wines

While Bernhard Heyns was still living in Johannesburg - he had a dream of starting a wine farm from scratch. In 2001, his dream started to become a reality when he bought a Canola farm in Bot River. He saw its potential to produce excellent quality wines and started growing vines in 2002 - their first vintage was in 2008.Gabrielskloof is a family-run business. Bernhard's daughter Nicolene is married to Peter-Allan Finlayson who owns Crystallum wines. Peter-Allan joined the Gabrielskloof team as winemaker in 2014 and he has been making beautiful elegant wines for them ever since his first vintage in 2015.
TEAM: Peter-Allan Finlayson is the head winemaker at Gabrielskloof. He is the son of Peter Finlayson, the Pioneer of Pinot Noir who founded Bouchard Finlayson and, like his father, he has a passion for making wine and has proven to be exceptional at it. Nicolene is involved with the business side of Gabrielskloof and together with an excellent team, she ensures that visitors to the farm are very well looked after.
LOCATION: Gabrielskloof is located just after the Bot River turn-off from the N2 between Elgin and Hermanus. There are two main soil types on the farm – sandstone and shale and the wines produced are a reflection of the terroir. They farm sustainably and aim to protect and preserve the environment as much as possible.
