Description

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

Fruit was harvested very early in the morning from the last week of February to the middle of March.
Grapes were harvested between 21? – 22?B from a selection of vineyards.  Yield: 14 ton/ha

In The Cellar

Gentle pressing followed by using a Pneumatic bag press to capture the delicate fruit component.

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

Fermentation happened slowly in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for 18 days at 13?C.

Oak Maturation nil – Fermentation Temp 13°C

Domaine des Ballandors Quincy 2019

This is the village adjacent to Sancerre and Pouilly Fume where wines of similar style are made but because of Quincy’s ‘lesser’ name at much reduced cost. This wine is a testament to that; the flavours and aromas achieved in this wine are equivalent to any top flight Sancerre, with ‘grippy’ edgy grapefruit notes and steely crisp fruit. When Anton Beukes, winemaker at the Môreson Winery in South Africa, tasted this wine at supper, he said; ‘This is the wine I would love to make’ - Anton makes some very serious wines, so what an accolade! Winner of Best French White Wine at ‘France under one roof’ London 2005.
