Hutton Ridge Chenin Blanc, Coastal Region
Named after the Hutton Soils of the West Coast of South Africa, the Hutton Ridge range of wines were crafted to highlight the relationship between earth and man in the cultivation of exceptional wines. Low yield bushvines grown in fertile dry land, is the secret behind this wine that offers richness of flavour and mouthwatering fruit. Fruity, very crisp and clean with hints of greengage and limes, this is a very refreshing wine that shows that modern made cold steel fermented Chenin Blanc grapes can produce very drinkable wines in South Africa.

- Other info: Riebeek Cellars, established in 1941, is situated in Riebeek Kasteel at the foot of Bothma's Kloof Pass. This medium-sized winery on the western coast of the Cape Province of South Africa sources its grapes from the fertile Riebeek Valley and the slopes of the mountain where the climate is very similar to that of the Mediterranean. Through the years as vineyard practices developed, cultivars have been planted in soil and on slopes best suited to them.
