This wine is made from traditional Douro white grape varieties: Viosinho, Rabigato and Gouveio. Made from the best grapes, this is a fresh and aromatic wine with a modern style. Citrus and asparagus aromas with elegant floral notes are perfectly integrated. Good balance, crisp freshness and a pleasant length.
Situated in the south of the Côte de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet is renowned especially for its prestigious white wines. The soils best suited for the production of white wines are primarily brown limestone. The vineyard is divided into 22 different climates for the Premiers Crus whites on 70 hectares with about 3,300 hectoliters of production.
The 2.0ha planting of Chenin Blanc is the oldest on the farm. Established in 1973, this single block is also one of the oldest in South Africa still used for vinification. Row and bunch selection of this single block make it possible to produce this Single Block Chenin Blanc. Situated in a cooler pocket of the farm with a southerly aspect and alongside a dam, the soils seldom require additional irrigation during the hot summer months. In special years the block is prone to a touch of carefully monitored Botrytis infection that promotes the production of high quality, intricately complex wine.
A Chardonnay with a Mediterranean soul, Chiarandà 2016 offers a complex bouquet with notes of fruit and aromatic herbs, combined with spicy and mineral scents. A complex and enveloping white, with a long and satisfying persistence and great aging potential.
This wine is crafted from 100% estate-grown Albariño that is cultivated on our historic property located only 150 feet from the Portuguese border and 22 miles from the Atlantic Ocean.
