The Classic Selection range of cultivar-specific wines comprises distinct, carefully blended wines from different parts of the renowned Paarl wine region.

The style is marked by climatic and maritime influences of the nearby ocean and the Boland mountains that result in fresh, fruit-driven wines reflecting typical varietal character and flavour.

The vineyards are situated in the Paardeberg and surrounding area of the Paarl Region. Chenin Blanc is Boland Cellar’s signature white grape variety that does particularly well in a warmer area like Paarl – which yields Chenin Blanc wines of fruit intensity in a robust and fuller style. Chenin Blanc is a versatile cultivar, well-adapted to warm weather and resistant to the strong southerly winds prevailing here in summer.

Harvested at 22° Balling in the second half of February, the grapes reached the cellar at optimal ripeness to ensure the varietal flavours are retained. After destemming and crushing, skin contact was allowed for 4 – 6 hours to impart flavour and structure. Cool, slow fermentation is required for three weeks and thereafter the wine is left on the lees for three months, resulting in a balanced end-product with rich fullness of flavour. The wine remains in stainless steel tanks until blended and ready for bottling in order to retain its typical fruity freshness.

This crisp, fruity Chenin Blanc is characterised by juiciness, freshness and upfront aromas. It presents tropical flavours with layers of lime, melon and fresh guava fruit. A wine with typical Chenin Blanc flavours which has become a firm regional favourite. Delicious with chicken, mild curry dishes or salads – or simply on its own.

Boland Cellar has won the award for Best Chenin Blanc producer in South Africa ten times in recent years.
