Tasting Notes

A ripe, open nose with white peach, apricots and hints of jasmine flowers. Old bush vine Chenin gives lovely texture and generosity to the palate, veiled with white spice and exotic notes from the younger, alluring Grenache Blanc. The finish is rich, yet fresh and textural.

Producer details

Wildeberg’s rationale is to source the finest vineyards available to them across Franschhoek and the Coastal Region, producing small yet definitive expression of all the vineyards they worked with, and its these cuvees that are again selected to go into Coterie by Wildeberg.

In the vineyard

Wildeberg's rationale is to source the finest vineyards available to us across Franschoek and the Coastal Region, from which cuvées the grapes are plucked to make Wildeberg and the Terroir Series releases. Chenin and Grenache Blanc really complement each other very well and both varieties love the Coastal Region's arid soils and Mediterranean climate due to their inherent tolerance to drought.

In the winery

Both components were naturally fermented in 600 litre French oak barrels. The Chenin is from an old, low-yielding Franschhoek vineyard planted in 1962, bringing freshness and tightness to the blend, as well as the old vines adding Wildeberg's hallmark texture. The Grenache Blanc is from vibrant, younger plantings in Paarl, adding body and structure with its naturally exotic notes of jasmine and white spice. 65% 2nd fill and 35% 3rd fill barrels.

Food Recommendations

This is a rich, textural wine whose body and exotic jasmine notes would ably marry with gentle Malay and Thai green fish curries. It would partner well with lemongrass and coriander, or simply barbequed fish.
