Many of South Africa's Clairette Blanche plantings have been uprooted over the years. Luckily, this little block in the Polkadraai in Stellenbosch is still firmly rooted and is said to be one of, if not the last, block in Stellenbosch. When husband and wife team, Mick and Jeanine, discovered this vineyard, they had no doubt they wanted to source these grapes, as they produce wines only from Stellenbosch and are incredibly passionate about the region. Light and linear, this Clairette Blanche has flavours of yellow fruit and subtle minerality, with a distinct savoury character to the long finish. Partial fermentation on the skins also lends a bit of structure to this wine.
