Alheit's Stunning 2020s

Alheit Vineyard's Stunning 2020s

2020 was a dry year for Alheit Vineyards, following on from the abundant 2019. The yields were incredibly small: according to Chris this was the most expensive vintage to produce to date. The single-vineyard that produces Magnetic North yielded a paltry 1.35 tonnes per hectare. Bad for Chris, but great for us. This wine is the single greatest South African wine I have tasted. That sentiment extends across all the wines produced here. His flagship wine, Cartology, has produced its best vintage yet.

There is some other good news. There is a new wine this year, Hereafter Here, which is a slight departure for Chris, as this is made from young vines from two sites in Stellenbosch. You can still see the Alheit DNA in this wine for its balance of purity and concentration.

Finally, the wine formerly known as La Colline Semillon has now changed its name to Monument, due to a trademark issue with another producer.
