Cartology Chenin Blanc-Semillon 2015 Alheit Vineyards 75cl / 14%
A bottle of Cartology Chenin Blanc-Semillon 2015 from Alheit Vineyards in the Western Cape of South Africa.
This is a blend of 86% Chenin Blanc and 14% Semillon harvested from dry grown bush vines most of which are 40 to 50 years of age.
‘The idea was to make a very Cape wine from very Cape vineyards,’ says Chris Alheit. ‘This is the same set of vineyards we have been working with since 2013. The initial growth of 20 to 40 then to 80 barrels is because we just bought more of the vineyards that we knew worked.’ There are 9 parcels in this. Complex and detailed with lovely spicy structure to the pear and ripe apple fruit, with some citrus peel freshness. Lovely acid structure sitting under the complex fruit, with a structured finish. Has some pear skin on the finish, and a hint of green tea. Just lovely. 94/100' Jamie Goode, Wine Anorak, 2017
