Kaapzicht Kliprug & 1947 Chenin Vertical with Danie Steytler

The Wine Library | Culture Wine Bar | 103 Bree Street at 08/02/2023 6:30 pm

Join us and Winemaker Danie Steytler for a indepth exploration of 2 of Kaapzicht’s most popular and prestigious Chenin Blancs! We will be tasting vertical flights across 4 vintages to explore how these wines evolve and express themselves over the years. They do not have much library stock of either of the wines, so be sure to get a ticket to this once in a lifetime tasting!

Kliprug Chenin Blanc:
Back in 1982 when our winemaker Danie Jnr was two years old, this vineyard was planted on a rocky ridge — Kliprug — dotted with rough iron-rich stones. These dryland bush vines have heritage and wisdom, imparting perfect texture, balance and that magical old vine x-factor. Really, it’s a wine that makes itself.

The 1947 Chenin Blanc:
Four generations of Steytlers have been custodians of this special site for almost eight decades. Today, it is one of the oldest Chenin Blanc vineyards in the country. It’s deeply connected to our history and our home, making it impossible to mimic. The wine exemplifies the tension between generosity and restraint found in Bottelary Chenin Blanc.
Only released in superior vintages.
