'Grapes mostly from Swartland, however around 15% came from own vineyards. Spontaneously fermented and aged in a combination of old barrels and stainless-steel tanks for about six months. Citrus, peach, struck match reduction and lanolin on the nose while the palate is rich and full with tangy acidity and a savoury finish. Smooth textured and entirely seductive.' – Winemag Prescient Chenin Blanc Report 2021, Top 10 (93/100)

'On the nose - white peach, pear, almonds and wet stone. The palate is driven by vibrant acidity and mineral freshness with a long, lingering aftertaste. Best enjoyed at 13˚C. Drink in the next two years.' – Winemaker

Producer information Gabriëlskloof was established in 2001 when Bernhard Heyn discovered the Avontuur farm, located on the outskirts of Botrivier. He purchased the land and created Gabriëlskloof as we know it today. On the farm, they are passionate about incorporating environmentally friendly practices, where possible, and Gabriëlskloof is a WWF Conservation Champion farm. Cellar Master, Peter-Allan Finlayson, has been at Gabriëlskloof since 2014 and has reshaped the Gabriëlskloof aesthetic. Their wines aim to reflect the complexity, richness and diversity of Gabriëlskloof's unique terroir.
