In the beautiful Constantia area, owner Lars Maack, together with winemaker Brad Paton, actually only produces wines in the top segment: fresh and full-bodied wines. The slow maturing climatic conditions with cold nights and modest daytime temperatures translate into fresh, crisp and full-bodied wines.

The Buiten Expectation Buiten Blanc is without a doubt one of the most popular South African wines in wine bars and restaurants around the world and rightly so, just a very well made crisp white blend of Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc and a touch of Viognier. The wine has had no wood aging and is raised for 100% in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and this gives and keeps the wine its freshness and crispness. This Buiten Blanc is surprisingly full with aromas of fruit on the nose and mouth including ripe gooseberries, green melon and tropical fruit, complemented by peppers. The addition of the Chenin Blanc grape gives this wine complexity and some 'spicy' aromas. This is a delicious aperitif and delicious with or with fresh salads, dishes with chicken and fish dishes (without a sauce of butter or cream).

Vineyard for 2020 Buitenverwachting Buiten Blanc

The history of the South African winery Buitenverwachting goes back to 1773. Wijnhuis Buitenverwachting introduced the concept of environmentally friendly agriculture, which is better for the land, the worker and less pollution. From 1773, this winery has had no fewer than 16 owners, some of whom have faced many debts. Despite this history, the winery flourished in 1825, led by Ryk Arnoldus Cloete, brother of the famous Henry of Constantia. In 1981, when the winery was owned by the Mueller family, the vineyards were explored, which led to extensive replanting of the various vineyards. This led to the largest harvest ever for Buitenverwachting in 1985. The winery has since undergone many modernizations, including a completely renovated winery.
