2022 Noa Chenin Blanc, Rall Wines, Swartland

2022 Noa Chenin Blanc, Rall Wines, Swartland

From a vineyard near David Sadie's cellar on the Paardeberg, planted in 1969, and named in honour of Donnovan's second daughter. Tihis is tense and vibrant, and there's remarkable focus. It lasts for so long on the finish. Brilliant.

Tasting notes

Confirming the promise of the initial 2021 release, Noa hails from a 1969 Paardeberg vineyard on granite and ferricrete soils. Curated in concrete eggs and foudres, it's all about texture and structure rather than wood, with lime, green apple and lemongrass flavours and plenty of underlying grip and tension. 2024-30
