The 2015, a blend of 86% Chenin Blanc and 14% Semillon, is lively on the nose, yet reticent at the same time. Very youthful and needs some time to evolve, although it is offering a brief glimpse of the promised quince, honeyed stone fruits and citrus palate.. This is one for the cellar and for those wanting to discover the South African white wine landscape.


Tasting Notes

Cartology is intended to be a picture of the Cape, seen through the lens of her mature vineyards, in a given vintage. Therefore, the cuveé is composed of rare and extraordinary parcels of mature dryland bushvines. This wine has been almost impossible to get hold of since the 2011 maiden vintage. Grab some while you can. Max 6 bottles per customer.


Press Note:

93 points, Tim Atkin SA Wine Report 2016 'A compelling nose – pear, citrus and white peach but also dried herbs, thatch, yellow earth and a subtle waxy note. Relatively rich on the palate but very flavourful and entirely seamless – grapes are drawn from mainly from Perdeberg and Skurfberg but also Bot River and Stellenbosch as well as Franschhoek in the case of the Semillon and there’s a sense that Alheit grows ever more expert at how to meld the different components. Great fruit concentration, coated acidity and a nice pithy quality to the finish.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za
