Chenin Blanc, Bain's Way, Wellington, South Africa

Named after a legendary South African pioneer, Andrew Bain, who built the road that connected the Cape to the north of the country and ran through the Wamakersvallei (valley of the wagons) where in 1941 a group of like-minded grape growers founded a central cellar for the pressing of their grapes. The cellar grew its members and boasted a variety of fine wine brands for an even wider variety of wine lovers. Their Chenin is made from grapes that come from bush vine vineyard, picked at optimum ripeness from about 24°B (Brix - a measurement of sugar). After the crush, the juice was left on the skins for 3 to 5 hours to encourage aromas and flavours and then pressed.

Glenelly Estate Reserve Chardonnay, Stellenbosch
£17.49

Glenelly Estate, purchased in 2003 by Madame May de Lencquesaing following her sale of famous Bordeaux Chateau,Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande can be found on the southern slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain in Idas Valley, Stellenbosch. Madame May, at over 80-years of age, decided that rather than easing into her retirement she would add to her 30 years of experience in the wine business. She believed in the soil, the micro-climate and the potential for quality wines in the 128 hectare property. Winemaker, Luke O'Cuinneagain, has s suitably Francophile approach to winemaking which was no doubt nurtured whilst working several vintages at high profile estates in Bordeaux and Alsace. The grapes were whole bunch pressed and the juice transferred to new 500 litre barrels after settling. Following 7 months on its lees the Grand Vin Chardonnay sees 10 months in barrel. It is well proportioned with great poise and lift.
