William Robertson Chenin Blanc
William Robertson Chenin Blanc is an appealing light straw colour, light with lovely ripe, attractive rounded fruit.
With a fresh floral nose and an exciting acid balance, William Robertson Chenin Blanc can be enjoyed now with seafood, smoked salmon, roast chicken and pork.
During the late 19th century, a worker community occupied the land where the Robertson Winery now stands, they built a stone church and their congregation were served by missionaries.
When Robertson Winery was established in 1941, the small church was no longer in use and the winery acquired the building for its winemaking and cellaring operations. http://www.newgenerationwines.com/wineries/robertson-winery
Today, the historic church still plays an important role in the maturation of the wines.
The fruit was sourced from 35 specially selected grape growing families in the Robertson Valley.
Vines are grown in deep cool alluvial soil that is rich in lime and receives an annual rainfall of only 280 mm per year.
Our Chenin Blanc vines are planted on the riverbanks with a row direction from northwest to southeast to utilize the prevailing sea breeze.
The sea breeze cools down the fruit, extends the ripening period and builds up concentrated flavours in the grapes.
The average annual rainfall is supplemented by controlled drip irrigation from the Breede River.
About The Harvest

The wine was made reductively to prevent any oxidation and to ensure that natural flavours of the grapes could be retained.
