Chris & Suzaan Alheit 2018 Cartology
The 2018 is another great success for this now cult wine from South Africa. A Cape blend of 90% Chenin Blanc & 10% Semillon. Not a single vineyard wine but always but always from dry farmed bush vines, and minimum 30 years old.
"Some citrus fruit, green fruits and a light stone-dust minerality. There’s a note of oak spice but it’s subtle. So seductively creamy on the palate but with a piercing freshness to balance. Intense and alive. Stunning new vintage." Julia Harding MW jancisrobinson.com
As one of South Africa’s newest producers, Alheit Vineyard declares its aim as being ‘to vinify extraordinary Cape vineyards’. The fact that Chris and Suzaan Alheit set out on their venture to make only white wine, is a testament to their commitment to seek out some of the oldest vineyard blocks in the country. Using the knowledge and contacts of leading viticulturist, Rosa Kruger, within two short years, Alheit Vineyards has established itself as the most talked about winery in the Cape, with its limited releases being highly sought-after.
Winery space is rented in shed, originally conceived as an olive oil production facilty, on the Hemel-en-Aarde road out of Hermanus. Probably as far away as one could expect to be from their primary grape sources on the West Coast.
