The Rustler Chenin Blanc 2011

Voted South Africa’s ‘Winemaker of the Year 2009’, Bruce Jack learned his craft at iconic Aussie wineries Grant Burge and Simon Hackett and also worked a vintage in Bordeaux – where he was struck by lightning while fork-lifting a pallet of wine! Some might speculate that this was the source of all Bruce’s energy, not to mention his talent for super-charged whites – but the truth is that he knows the technical side of winemaking inside out and has real passion that shines through in every wine he makes. Made with Chenin from old, bush-trained vines and vinified in Bruce’s award-winning Flagstone winery, this crisp, appley white makes a delicious aperitif, and is a great partner for creamy sauced white meats or pan-fried belly pork.
