David & Nadia, Chenin Blanc, Swartland, South Africa, 2020
Overview of the Wine
David & Nadia is a family owned Swartland driven project and we focus on a spectrum of organic, old and dry land bush vine vineyards from different areas with different soil types throughout the Swartland, farmed by like-minded people. We are members of the Swartland Independent Producers.
In the vineyard we aim for biological farming and in the cellar we work as natural as possible. It is all about the soil and vineyards after all. We believe in a pure, fresh and natural style where site and soil are at work with minimal influence from a winemaking point of view.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Their main Chenin blanc from the Swartland focuses yet again on various Old Vine Vineyards, ranging plantings from 1962 till 1982 and based on granite from the Paardeberg, blended with schale/schist from the east, clay from the north and iron from the western parts of the Swartland. Dry-land farmed bush vines stood the test of time and it showcases the ultimate reason why Chenin Blanc is their main focus in the Swartland. Whole bunch pressed and naturally fermented, matured for 11 months in old neutral French oak barrels.

Complex nose of grilled pineapple, preserved lemon, green fig, beeswax and sea urchin. It’s medium-bodied with bright acidity. Layered and textured with flinty, waxy and zesty undertones. Long. Drink or hold.
