2022 Van Hamersveld LVT Chenin blanc & Sauvignon blanc
Van Hamersveld Wines was created because Cees van Hamersveld, as the owner of several high-quality restaurants and hotels, including the famous boutique hotel De Zwarte Boer, went in search of 'the ultimate glass of wine'. For this, they fly across the world to assemble these wines themselves. Always with farmers who work with respect for people and nature. The eye fell on the vineyards Imbuko Winery in Wellington, South Africa and Domaine de Marotte in Ventoux, France. A delicious and honest range of wines with an almost unprecedented good price/quality ratio.
This blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc complements each other perfectly. The Chenin Blanc immediately explodes from the glass with ripe notes of stone fruit and is also clearly present in the attack. A few seconds later, the Sauvignon Blanc shows itself with subtle acids and citrus fruit. a wonderfully fresh, fruity dry wine and not too high in alcohol, which makes it a nice terrace wine or aperitif. The wine is sustainably grown and certified by the South African Wine and Spirit board (www.swsa.co.za) with the predicate "Integrity & Sustainabiliy"
The wine has been awarded double gold at the Chinese Wine & Spirit Awards.
Wine from Wellington
Constantia, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek are beautiful and symbolic of Cape viticulture. But the Cape Winelands also have a rougher, less touristy side. For that you have to go north, to the older vineyards in wards and outlying areas such as Wellington, Piekenierskloof and the magical Skurfberg. The reward: some of the best and most original South African wines. Once you've passed Paarl, on the R44 or R45, you'll notice it. The landscape changes slowly and is less crowded. Although the city of Wellington has more than 50,000 inhabitants, the surrounding wine region is quite quiet, also because it is much less touristy than, for example, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek.
