Producer Note
Ernst & Gouws is a family owned business in the heart of Stellenbosch, South Africa.
Synonymous with producing quality South African wines which are rich in heritage,
tradition and driven by a profound passion for wine and family values. In 1975 a
dapper and enthusiastic Ernst travelled to Europe, under his father's instructions not to
return to South Africa until he had mastered the art of winemaking. During his voyage
of discovery to France and Germany he missed his childhood sweetheart, Gwenda
and invited her to visit. After falling madly in love they decided to marry there and then.
Forty years later, three children and many Gouws grandchildren later, Ernst and
Gwenda still run the family business alongside their three children, Ezanne, Ernst Jnr
and Inke.


Vineyard
Ernst subscribes to the French philosophy that the quality of the grape is inextricably
linked to the "terroir", so he travels to various regions throughout the Western Cape and
handpicks his grapes in the areas where they naturally grow at their very best. This wine
was made from old bush vines, who send their roots deep into the soil, in search of
nutrients, which leads to added complexity in the resulting wine. This wine is registered
Fairtrade, which helps ensure that farmers and workers are receiving a fair price as well
as an additional premium to help their community invest in essential services such as
education, sanitation and health care.


Winemaking
The hand-picked grapes were crushed, destemmed and cooled to 10°C. Fermentation
took place in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures. The wine then spent four
months on its fine lees, which imparted texture and complexity to the wine. Made in an
unoaked style, to showcase the purity of fruit.


Tasting Note
This light, fruity and fresh Chenin Blanc starts quietly, building into a glorious mouthful of
mixed citrus flavours of ruby grapefruit and lime. The zippy acidity and lower alcohol
make this a delicious all day, every day wine.
