Only when I started producing this wine I truly understood how to look at a vintage and compare vintages with one another. The reason being that the only real variable is the vintage as we use the same Single Vineyard Chenin with the same minimalistic approach in the winery working on a similar timeline. The other important thing to show through this collection case is the age-ability of this wine. Made the way it is the wine is built to age well, some years better than other yes, but all of these are still good and some still with many miles left on the clock.

NOTES FROM THE WINEMAKER
The beauty of this wine is even though it stays the same each year (as it’s harvested from the same Single Vineyard classified block on the farm), each year is different. The 2017 vintage shows some restraint at first, even a bit shy, but then opens up to show quince and pineapple notes with a freshness and finesse ever present on the palate as yellow peach flavours run through your mouth. The distinctive depth and complexity of fruit we’ve learned to appreciate and love of the Carl Everson Chenin, is on show again with the 2017. These precious 35 year old vines, old French barrels, spontaneous fermentation and minimalistic cellar intervention in the end proclaim our Slanghoek terroir through this wine.
