Andre Bruyns City Hill Old Vine Chenin Blanc 2022

Andre Bruyns City on a Hill Old Vine Chenin Blanc - wimbledon wine cellar

Wine Safari Score: 95+/100 Greg Sherwood MW: First tasted in March 2023 with André in the Swartland, this wine has blossomed over the past six months into something really very exciting. Made from grapes sourced from three Swartland vineyards planted between 1968 and 1981, two on deep decomposed granitic soils and one on iron-rich soils, the aromatics show complex notes of white peach, orange citrus peel, ripe quince, waxy green apples, crunchy pears and intricate hints of incense, dry bushveld and dried herbs. Time in bottle has allowed the silky seamless palate to really flesh out with a concentrated core of sweet yellow orchard fruits, apple puree and a liquid minerality that is framed by a bright, saline line of acidity. This is a wonderfully crafted old vine Chenin Blanc that typifies everything great about this noble cultivar. Drink on release and over the next 8 to 10+ years.
