Chenin Blanc

Swartland Chenin Blanc is in a league of its own while, to explain it stylistically, meanders through the regions of France to rise as a uniquely South African product. It shows the power of Chenin Blanc from Anjou in the Loire, the sun kissed expression of white wines from the northern Rhone and is supported by a structural minerality typical of wines from Chablis. The Badlands Chenin Blanc proudly carries the Certified Heritage Vineyards seal indicating wine made from vineyards of 35 years or older, certified by the Old Vine Project (OVP), the regulatory authority protecting old vines in South Africa. The Swartland has pioneered the trend of protecting old vines, and it is part of the world wine phenomena to recognise the immense quality of old vines. The Old Vine Protect is most exciting because the seal now guarantees wine lovers an authentic wine grown according to the OVP viticultural and winemaking guidelines. We believe that our Badlands Chenin Blanc encompasses this philosophy with its complexity, intensity, layers of flavour, and incredible length.
