Both Chenin and Grenache Blanc are perfectly suited for growing in the soils of Paarl, and this refined style of wine most certainly goes against the standard grain. With fresh apricot, orange blossoms and lemon zest on the nose, the savoury and complex palate reflects a grainy texture aquired from skin-contact during the winemaking process. Well-rounded and pleasantly odd, this wine rewards the drinker when given time in the glass to unfold.
Bergbok means ‘Mountain Goat’ in Afrikaans, and is a regular sighting up on the higher slopes of the Chenin and Grenache Blanc vineyards from which this wine was crafted. Without a doubt, our talented hand-harvesters have had to adapt to be as sure-footed as the bergbokke that roam our hills, sharing a love for the fynbos-covered habitat and taste for the fruit of the vine.
