Quest Old Vine Chenin Blanc 2020 Part 1 - Willie Stofberg

Willie Stofberg - Winemaker "Walk us through the process of making this wine"

For the premium Quest wine range Du Toitskloof selects grapes from various vineyards in the Western Cape chosen to meet the Cellar Master’s requirements in creating a profile for each specific vintage.  We travel through different wine regions searching for the ultimate vineyard blocks, finding some gems along the way. Each vineyard offers a unique fingerprint aimed at our journey to create wines of individual character with their own personality.  From these low-yield terroir-specific sites only the best grapes were hand-picked at optimum physiological ripeness to ensure fine, pure fruit reaching the winery.

Quest - Old Vine Chenin Blanc

Distinctive floral notes and aromas of dried peach, citrus, and lime with firm crisp acidity. Wooded in French and American oak, the wine shows elegant and delicate tannins whilst respecting the fruit. The amphora component also brings an earthy and a mineral layer to the wine.

Pair this old vine Chenin with rich fishcakes and baby potatoes covered in sour cream and fresh chives from the garden or pork chops with crispy fat next to a wild rocket, apple and walnut salad.
