Kleine Rust Chenin Blanc/Sauvignon Blanc in an Oak Finish Wine Case
This is made from a blend of two grape varieties: Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc. As a result it is a great blend of very ripe, tropical fruit flavours with some refreshing, zesty citrus flavours as well. It is a Fair Trade wine, allowing the farm workers own the vineyards and are paid a fair wage for the grapes produced. Stellenrust bottled its first wine on the farm in 1928. Today the winery is run by the brothers Tertius (winemaker) and Kobus (viticulturist), and is one of the largest family-run Fairtrade estates in Stellenbosch, with 500 hectares of land under vine. The brothers are committed to following their father’s dream: to give back to the workers, who themselves had given so much to the farm. Stellenrust now boasts one of the biggest and most successful Black Economic Empowerment projects in South Africa. The project has resulted in seventy employees taking ownership of the land they farm. Tertius himself puts it more eloquently: ‘These are the men and women we grew up with, we played together when we were young and now we work together towards the same dream and goal.’ This wine is medium-bodied with a lingering after taste. The wine is presented on a lovely oak finish case.
