“BOER MAAK ‘N PLAN”
SINGLE VINEYARD CHENIN BLANC
The Afrikaans word “Boer” is a noun, a verb, and an adjective. It is a term of respect and an antagonistic rallying cry. It is electric with identity, symbolising collective self-determination and is used both positively and with contempt. I have met parochial farmers the world over – comes with the territory. But I have
also worked with salt-of-the-earth farmers – generous, wise, humble, practical – many living in harmony with nature. The best survive at the whim of the weather, making do with very little. This is what the phrase “Boer maak ‘n plan” means.
24 year-old vines, barrel fermentation and maturation produce distinctive notes of yellow apple alongside green melon and lime on the nose. This wine is beautifully structured on the palate, bursting with fresh yellow and white fruit flavours and a subtle yet distinctive finish.
