In The Vineyard

The Kogelberg Chenin Blanc is from a registered single vineyard named the Kogelberg block from Vrede en Lust’s Elgin farm, Casey’s Ridge.

The first bottling of a single varietal Chenin Blanc was in 2011 and received a Gold Michelangelo Award just prior to its release. The 2012 vintage received the same honors as its maiden vintage and the 2013 also boasts with a silver award proving to be a popular wine on this show.

As far as could be established this wine currently is the only single varietal Chenin Blanc produced from fruit certified as wine of origin Elgin.


In The Cellar

The wines were fermented in 225 and 500 litre French oak barrels using 2nd and 3rd fill barrels. The wine was left on lees for 10 months prior to bottling.
