Warmer conditions compared to previous vintages saw harvest get underway beginning of January. This resulted in optimum fruit ripeness of excellent quality from well managed blocks. 

Swan Valley 

Chenin Blanc

he fruit was hand-picked from our premium #7 plot of rare, old chenin blanc vines and was matured on fine lees before being bottled in July. The depth and generosity from the characters of the old vines is evident in every sip of this stunning wine.

Expect lifted aromas of yellow fruits, honeydew and poached pear on the nose and a delightful bouquet leads into a softly balanced palate of talc and pomme fruit, with an oily and aromatic long finish that is both generous and well-rounded. This wine will develop beautifully with age for up to 15 years.

Alcohol: 13.5%
pH: 3.88
Titratable Acidity: 6.14g/L


Gained top points from Matthews, who thought it: “A different spin on chenin blanc with new oak vanilla bean notes on the nose. Surprisingly, works quite well on the palate. Glossy green apple, baked pastries and crème fraiche. Nice line and
length, with seamless acidity.” I loved its apple/stone fruit combination, apple-skin texture and length.

Score - 95

Appealed to me with its positive, gooseberry and feijoa aromas. The palate’s round, with flavours turning more to stonefruits. It finishes with subtle sweetness and good ength. Honan noted, “A subtle lick of volatile acidity on the inhale. Saline sweetness on the palate, lemon and passionfruit. Moreishness. Great carry, compels another sip.
