Botanica Chenin Blanc 2013

Botanica Chenin Blanc 2013

This ever so beautiful expresssion of the Chenin Blanc grape is the expression of very old dry farmed old bush vines in the Skurfberg. This vineyard, far north in the Citrusdal Mountains, has been lovingly rehabilitated. The resulting wines are very special. They are rich but fine, multilayered with complexity, minerality, texture, balance, elegance. The impact on the senses lingers long and the wine itself will last for quite some time - if one can resist the temptation to drink it sooner.

About Kinnegar

Kinnegar Wines was born almost by accident and been growing organically since.

In 1998, I was in the midde of a two year diploma course with the London Wine & Spirits Trust when an opportunity came up to visit South Africa's Western Cape. Naturally, I was keen to avail of the opportunity to learn more about viticulture and winemaking in South Africa.

We had an excellent guide who brought us to a number of the Cape's leading estates including Thelema and De Trafford where we had in depth vineyard and cellars tours. At the end of the day, I wanted to take back some of the wonderful wines we had tasted for our own use. It was not possible to take two or three cases of wine with us on our flight and shipping such a small quantity was more than the cost of wines. So I had the mad idea of shipping a pallet! Clearly, I had to start selling these wines and so began Kinnegar Wines. Ashford Castle took many of the wines and continue to list them and newer arrivals ever since.
