The Good Guys Take
The Innocent White Blend 2019 too is very impressive. It’s description as fruit driven and accessible belies its complexity. And it’s vinification suggest that it will age beautifully too. This is a white blend that tastes like the Swartland, with a significant percentage of old vine Chenin Blanc, complemented by Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc.

Platter’s Guide: 4.5/5 stars
A delicious everyday drinking wine. A fresh wine with hints of quince, pear and zesty lemon and lime flavours. A full mouth feel with a lingering aftertaste and crisp acidity. A perfect blend of Swartland Chenin Blanc (C), Viognier(V) and Sauvignon Blanc(S). Farmed dry-land, thus not irrigated. The Chenin vines are roughly 50-year-old bush vines. The Viognier, and Sauvignon Blanc are also on varying degrees of decomposed granite but on opposite slopes of the valley thus different ripening patterns are observed and there is more to play with in the cellar.
66% Chenin Blanc, 19% Viognier, 15% Sauvignon Blanc
