“The Skurfberg Mountain is part of the Citrusdal mountain area and the word Skurfberg (Rugged Mountain) mainly refers to the edgy and rough appearance of the mountain. The soil is mainly decomposed Table Mountain sandstone formations and tends to be very sandy. This is also an area with no phylloxera, the disastrous disease that almost annihilated the entire grape-growing world. Here one can still plant own-rooted vines today. This Chenin Blanc from the Skurfberg area is completely different from any other in South Africa and it is one of the few places where we have the possibility to capture the stone fruit and extremely elegant aspects of Chenin Blanc together with a core of minerality. It is a truly great site for Chenin and it is most unusual that such a warm and dry area still produces wines with this enormous texture and freshness.” – Producer Note
