This Chenin Blanc with a splash of Viognier, covers a spectrum of flavours from brilliant lemon, blossom and juicy stone fruits. It’s rich with a lovely fruit concentration, creamy texture and balance. As the name of the wine suggests, City on a Hill comes from the undulating region of The Paardeberg mountains, which divides the Paarl and Swartland.

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.
