Grande Provence Chenin Blanc strikes gold at Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show

Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate has struck gold with the maiden vintage of its new single varietal Chenin Blanc at the 2018 Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show.

Crafted in a vibrant, fruit driven style from Helderberg and Franschhoek fruit, the Grande Provence Chenin Blanc 2017 is elegant and dry with flavours of stone fruit and hints of tropical notes. This wine captures the classic characteristics and purity of Chenin Blanc in a manner that is accessible, yet complex.

For winemaker Hagen Viljoen, the 2017 vintage represents a pure expression of freshness, elegance and hints of complexity – all the key elements to strive for in quality Chenin Blanc winemaking.

In addition to the Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show gold medal, the Grande Provence Chenin Blanc has been selected for British Airways First Class lounges at South African airports.

With National Drink Chenin Blanc Day coming up on Friday, 15 June, you’ll want to enjoy a glass or two of this award winning wine – or better still, pop in for a tasting at the Grande Provence tasting room in Franschhoek. The wine is available at selected wine outlets country-wide and sells at the cellar door for R95 a bottle.

All Grande Provence wines can be purchased online at Purchases of Grande Provence wines of 12 bottles or more qualify for free delivery anywhere in South Africa.

Located in Franschhoek, the heartland of South African wine country, Grande Provence offers true South African wine heritage, exceptional food and luxury boutique accommodation.
