Aromas of green apples, wet stone and lemongrass. Medium-bodied with lovely silky texture. Bright acidity drives the palate with subtle white tea character. So much restraint and focus here. Elegant through and through. From vineyards planted in 1978. Sustainable. Drink or hold.

Steen is of course the old South African name for chenin blanc. This comes from an old vine parcel. Au naturale winemaking of course, from one of South Africa’s most notable winemakers, and one who was part of a revolution for avant garde and premium wine from the country.
High toned green herb, floral and appley aromas and flavours, a good deal of saline nuttiness and wheatgerm savouriness. It’s very concentrated and decidedly savoury, preserved lemon but with a huge, oatmeal savouriness to taste and chewy, powdery-minerally feel. Great intensity and yet control. Outstanding. Drink 2022 - 2028.
