This is the purity of South Africa's finest terroir, distilled into a single bottle. This Chenin is produced from only the very best barrels 'City on a Hill' crafts in each vintage, offering a textural, fruit-forward wine brimming with orchard fruit, white peach and lemon. A wine that perfectly showcases why this white grape is synonymous with fringe South African winemaking.

About City on a Hill

André Bruyns, the assistant winemaker to Swartland stars David and Nadia Sadie, started making wine under his own label City on a Hill in 2015. André wants his wines to be very specific to their site and soil type. His white grapes come from 35-year-old dryland vineyards in the Paardeberg Mountain, planted mainly with Chenin Blanc.

He farms sustainably using some organic and biodynamic practices. The granite soils enhance the stony/mineral attributes of the grapes giving rise to a focused and linear style. The wines are fermented naturally in old oak barrels to enhance the sense of place.
