User Reviews for Saam Mountain Chenin Blanc

Winemaker's Notes:

Saam is Afrikaans for 'together'. The name captures the true essence of the team and their attitude towards viticulture at Eensaamheid Farm. Located at the foot of Perdeberg Mountain range, Saam Mountain Vineyards is a new South African venture that unites winemaking and farming. The area is known locally as the Mountain of Horses after the wild mountain zebra, the Quagga, used to roam there. Saam Mountain Vineyards forms under a group of 40 South African wine growers, spanning the premium growing areas from Paarl to the Durbanville Hills. The vineyards produce, on average, less than 7 tonnes per hectare - around half the average yields of other wineries of this scale, ensuring that quality of fruit and intensity of flavour is naturally at the heart of Saam Mountain's wines. Rich tropical aromas of pear, guava and ripe yellow stone fruits jump out of the glass when you pour Saam Mountain Chenin Blanc. The abundance of flavours carries through on the well-structured palate and rich aftertaste. This unwooded Chenin pairs fantastically with creamy goats cheese, sushi, pasta and pizza. Or as the winemaker suggests, just chill and enjoy a glass or two on its own.
