Magnetic North is, alongside Huilkrans and Nautical Dawn, one of Chris Alheit's top single origin Chenin Blancs, as opposed to his Cartology whose origin is mobile from year to year. The wine is made from two 1 hectare parcels, planted in 1981 and 1984, dry farmed and ungrafted. The yields produced here at pathetically small at 1.5 hectolitres per hectare.
With yields so low it's not hard to imagine the density and concentration of this wine, yet is not locked up, the nose is packed with fruit: grapefruit and ripe pear with fresh herbs.
