Eekhoring Wit 2018
Eekhoring is Afrikaans for "squirrel", and an exciting new collaboration between us and the talented guys behind De Kleine Wijn Koöp in Stellenbosch, South Africa. It's predominantly Chenin Blanc, with an eclectic cocktail of alternative varieties, mostly from the Swartland and from vines up to 38-years-old. The grapes were fermented in a mixture of stainless steel and old oak barrels. It has the hallmarks of the great Chenin-based Cape white blends: a textural, multi-layered, crisp, with floral aromas, some beeswax, then plush stone fruit on the palate, finishing dry and long.
Definitely a wine of which you should always have a few bottles squirrelled away!
