There is no doubt that Donovan Rall makes some of SA’s most unique wines. His latest set is a triumph of individuality and terroir expression. The 2019 Rall White follows on from the excellent 2018 and is special this year. A stand-out wine and a benchmark for South African whites, this multiregional blend of 68% Chenin Blanc with Verdelho and Viognier is particularly focused in 2019.

Tasting notes:
'68% Chenin Blanc, 28% Verdelho, 4% Viognier. An infinitely complex nose with notes of dried flowers, pear, peach, citrus, apple, baking spice and white pepper. The palate is clean and focused, the acidity providing snap, the finish long and pithy. Precisely made but also somehow effortless, this combines great clarity of fruit with plenty of detail.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 98/100

'Showing its highest-ever levels of acidity, this brilliant blend uses fruit from seven vineyards and is a cuvée of mostly Chenin Blanc with 28% Verdelho and 4% Viognier. Floral, leesy and complex with wonderful harmony and palate depth, notes of aniseed, pear and beeswax and racy minerality. One of the Cape's best blended whites. 2021-29' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 96/100
