De Kleine Wijn Koop, 'Eekhoring Wit', Chenin Blanc Blend, Western Cape, South Africa
De Kleine Wijn Koop (the little wine co-op) is a few chaps making superb wines with cool labels, calling in winemaker friends to make each cuvee. Everything is now in the talented hands of winemaker Wynand Grobler, wines have always been made with minimal intervention, utmost freshness and most importantly are a massively pleasurable to drink – but production is small so there’s never been much to go around. The Western Cape produces some fantastic wines and their Chenin Blanc blend (Chenin 78%, Grenache Blanc 10%, Marsanne 9% and Viura 3%), it has the hallmark of the great Chenin based Cape blends. It is mult-layered, crisp, stone fruit on the palate and a great long finish.
