Alheit Radio Lazarus Chenin Blanc Western Cape 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

100% high land dry land bushvine Chenin Blanc. At this early stage of the wine's life, the nose is showing lovely aromatics of apple, citrus zest, fennel and its typical chalky/dusty note. The palate is full of energy. Sweet fruit elements swim upstream in vain against a rip current of stony salinity. Tannic and textural elements amplify the great natural acidity, creating a very refreshing, palate cleansing drink.

Chris and Suzaan Alheit are a husband and wife team. They’ve worked in the Cape wine industry, as well as working harvests together in California’s Napa Valley, Western Australia, St.Emilion in France, Clare Valley in South Australia, and Germany’s Mosel River. During their travels they also toured and tasted in New Zealand, Languedoc, Rousillon, Provence, the Northern and Southern Rhone, and the Cyclades (Greece).   These adventures overseas filled them with a tremendous respect and admiration for the great wines of Europe. To them Europe is the heartland of truly fine wine, and they wish to apply lessons learnt there to what they do here in the Cape.   “Traveling gave us a lot of valuable perspective. It also cemented a real sense of excitement for what the Cape can achieve if we play to our strengths. The Old World way of thinking really inspired us.”   Making wine has become a family affair. Parents, Bates and Michelle Alheit play a critical role in the business, as do their ever enthusiastic friends Hans and Mary Anne Evenhuis.   Alheit Vineyards is based on Hemelrand, a beautiful mountain farm situated high on the Hemel & Aarde Ridge in Walker Bay. This rugged piece of fynbos covered land belongs to Hans and Mary Anne Evenhuis. Complete with stone buildings, Hemelrand is planted to an olive grove, lavender fields and a very exciting vineyard.
