Chenin Consistency

20 June 2020 Chenin Blanc lovers across the world will celebrate International Drink Chenin Day. A questions we receive on a regular basis is what makes Deetlefs Estate Chenin Blanc range unique from other wine estates.

The Deetlefs vineyards are established in the Western Cape at the foot of the Du Toitskloof Mountain range in the Breedekloof-area.It is these magnificent mountains that provide the early shadow formations and long cooling period at night. The vineyards benefit from the unique terroir on the banks of the Smalblaar River that forms the one border. Ideal conditions for enhancing the delicate and complex flavours in the grapes.

“It’s a land we love, and even more importantly, it’s a landscape we intimately understand thanks to knowledge passed through 7 generations. We have learnt which combination of cultivars, soil types and areas on the farm lends our wines the complexity and personality (styles) for which they’re celebrated” – Kobus Deetlefs

With any wine, consistency is key and the Chenin Blanc range from Deetlefs Wine Estate have been recognised on both a national & international level on quality, style as well as value for money:

Deetlefs Reserve Chenin Blanc 2018 awarded TOP score

Deetlefs Reserve Chenin Blanc 2018 was recently awarded a top score of 90+ by the Wine Advocate.

The Wine Advocate, fully known as the Robert Parker Wine Advocate, is a bimonthly wine publication based in the United States featuring the consumer advice of wine critic Robert M. Parker, Jr.

“The 2018 Chenin Blanc begins with aromas of fresh citrus and almond skin, with a pineapple and peach core that is lifted by hints of sweet oak spices. Medium-bodied, the palate is spicy and straightforward across the mid-palate and concludes with a nish that leaves me wanting a touch more complexity and depth of expression.”
