Description

This is a beautiful 100% Chenin Blanc from the Stellenbosch region of South Africa. Created by Ginny Povall, a self-taught winemaker from Boston, MA who has made an impressive career out of a long-time hobby. Her wines are bright and floral with a touch of acidity, a lovely summer wine.

History: Ginny eventually moved to South Africa and purchased Protea Heights Farm, which is located in Devon Valley, 10 minutes outside the center of Stellenbosch. Back in the late 1940s, it was the first farm in the entire country to grow protea flowers, which is South Africa’s national flower, and Ginny dedicates a fraction of her property to protea cultivation. With vineyards planted in 2009 and 2010, her winery is now coming into production.

Ginny is one of the exciting winegrowers to keep an eye on – her vibrant and charming personality shines through in her distinctly refined, textured and lively wines.

Tasting Notes: Peach, cut apple, some earthiness and a subtle yeasty note. Broad with some pleasant oxidative character and good acidity.

Pairing: great with goat cheese and brie
