Product Notes

Alheit Vineyards' Hemelrand Vine Garden wine portrays Simonsberg-Muldersvlei's sublime finesse. Handpicked Chenin Blanc, Roussanne, Chardonnay, and Verdelho grapes contribute to an intricate blend. The nose emanates enchanting fragrances of apricot and honeysuckle, mingling with a subtle, toastiness. On the palate, one experiences sun-warmed orchard fruits interlaced with distinct minerality. A distinct structure and lasting finish signify its potential for cellar ageing. The Hemelrand Vine Garden is reinventing South African wine, with its intriguing complexity and balanced elegance. A truly captivating vino.

Tasting Notes

As always this is quite an extreme wine with lots of flavour and some richness, cut by driving acidity. The nose is so complex and interesting: stone fruit and citrus with an exotic accent. The palate is also marvellously complex.
