WIT, Paarl, South Africa 2021


This is another carefully crafted white wine from JD Rossouw. Here is dry farmed old vine chenin blanc, unoaked. As Graham says ‘…this is the awkward intellectual with an IQ of 140 but no honesty filter – it wears it’s heart on it’s sleeve 100% of the time’.

A briny nose of lemon zest, beeswax and freshly crushed sea-salt, the palate delights in an immediate attack of tangy citrus twang, sandpaper texture and cheek-tickling breadth of freshness. Rich and generous nonetheless, this has a long, lemon drizzle cake texture, flavour and nuance… if that cake was made absolutely bone dry. 12% Vol.
