Alheit Vineyards Cartology 2018

Western Cape, South AfricaTen percent sémillon is tipped into this chenin blanc. Wild ferment, bush vines from nine parcels (still the same building blocks since the initial Cartology) make up the layered. blend. Wild herbs, green verbena, light cream, quince, subtle perfumed elderflower is spired with chenin's characteristic acidity, drawing this long along the waxen, lees-plumped palate. Savoury and potent mineral salts infiltrate, to a lengthy, saline finish. Excellent representation of the Cape, and of Alheit's style.Tasted: 24 May 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 60.00 private wine shops ON 60.00 consignment QC 60.00 Producer: Alheit VineyardsDistributors: Crush Imports
