Storm Point 2018 Western Cape Chenin Blanc

This is an excellent value from winemaker Mick Craven! Fruit is sourced from two Swartland sites, 20+ year-old vines in Riebeeck Valley, and 35 year old vines in Paardeberg. As Chenin Blanc is the calling card grape for South Africa it made sense to create Storm Point as a representation of the quality in this region. Though the climate is quite warm, a cool fermentation in stainless steel, and the blocking of malolactic fermentation keep this wine crisp and refreshing. The nose has a mix of ripe yellow apple and lemon zest, and the palate adds a dimension of salinity and balance of creaminess with zippy acidity. Incredibly easy to drink, and even easier to pair with. Michelle DeWyngaert

Storm Point 2019 Western Cape Red Blend

Storm Point Red is a juicy, fruit-forward red from three sustainably farmed  Swartland sites in Paardeberg, Malmesbury, and Riebeek Valley. The blend is 56% Cinsault, 29% Syrah, and 15% Carignan. Mostly destemmed, with just a quarter of the Syrah left whole-cluster, and then aged for 10 months in a combination of 75% neutral French barrels, and 25% stainless steel.
