Pale straw yellow in colour. The bouquet shows ripe apple and hints of peach aromas. The palate brings subtle chalky notes which add interest and complexity. Juicy and will become richer in time. Typical Chenin acidity lingers on the finish.

Joostenberg is a 5th generation family business situated in the Muldersvlei district of Stellenbosch. They have always practiced traditional mixed farming but have expanded over the years. Ventures now include a deli, pork specialist butchery, bistro, events venue and Stellies Taproom, organic vineyard farming and boutique wine production, seasonal cut flowers, herbs and vegetables. They believe in producing and sourcing great quality, authentic products and supplying them directly to the public, right here on their farm. Brothers Tyrrel and Philip Myburgh’s great grandfather and his brother were making wine on the Joostenberg farm in the early 1900s. Back then the wine was made in a very traditional fashion, utterly devoid of the additives and manipulations that have helped define 'modern' wine. Sourcing fruit from Joostenberg and surrounding farms, Tyrrel and Philip have created this label to honour their forebears and have made the wines in the old style – simple, pure and honest.
