20 June 2020 Chenin Blanc lovers across the world will celebrate International Drink Chenin Day. A questions we receive on a regular basis is what makes Deetlefs Estate Chenin Blanc range unique from other wine estates.
The Deetlefs vineyards are established in the Western Cape at the foot of the Du Toitskloof Mountain range in the Breedekloof-area.It is these magnificent mountains that provide the early shadow formations and long cooling period at night. The vineyards benefit from the unique terroir on the banks of the Smalblaar River that forms the one border. Ideal conditions for enhancing the delicate and complex flavours in the grapes.
“It’s a land we love, and even more importantly, it’s a landscape we intimately understand thanks to knowledge passed through 7 generations. We have learnt which combination of cultivars, soil types and areas on the farm lends our wines the complexity and personality (styles) for which they’re celebrated” – Kobus Deetlefs
