Thistle & Weed 2020 chenin blanc case
The team’s original chenin, from a cool, high-altitude vineyard on the Simonsberg, planted as a rootstock trial in 1980, bringing further complexity to the lovely balance of tension and texture here.
From a windswept Certified Heritage vineyard planted in 1961, whose gnarled old vines bring both intensity and subtlety to the energy and structure of this excellent chenin.
This is a maiden release for Thistle & Weed, from a relatively sheltered site on the Paardeberg, and displays brightness and richness of fruit with a core of minerality on the long finish.
