Tasting Notes

Sonwater 2021 was inspired by the famous 1960’s Lieberstein blend and consists of Chenin Blanc and Clairette Blanche. Contrary to its counterpart, Sonwater is not a semi-sweet wine and boast with fresh acidity and a zesty dry palate. On the nose notes of white pear and lemon meringue lingers, followed by a citrus finish.

Viticulture 

Chenin Blanc was sourced from an old bush vine block in the Swartland planted in 1971 on the Langkloof farm. The Clairette Blanche, also from the Swartland, grow on decomposed granite soils on the Morelig farm.
