"A very pretty nose with greengage plum, green apple and a note of sapidity. Smooth and stylish it's got an attractive sweet-and-sour quality on the finish."

About the Producer

Wild House is a lifestyle range which reflects a place of raw energy, a weather-beaten hut exposed to the storm-swept slopes of the Cape's mountains. Inspired by the ever-shifting views of the landscape and weather from each aspect of the house, we crafted this range of wines to reflect the land we call home.

Vineyard and Winery

Chenin is the backbone grape varietal of South Africa; it’s the most profusely planted variety in the country and is closely associated to South Africa's wine-making identity. To capture the true sense of place and terroir, this wine has been made as a 100% unoaked Chenin Blanc. Fermenting only in stainless steel ensures the freshness, character and liveliness of the wine is maintained. To tame some of this energy and add more complexity and depth to the final wine, it was kept it on its fine lees for approximately nine months. This also adds to the lush mouthfeel and keeps the wine fresher for longer.
