From the Vineyard: Sneak Peak at the 2014 protea Chenin Blanc


This past harvest, protea was thrilled to welcome Mark van Buuren to the winemaking team led by Dawie Botha. Mark is a veteran South Africa winemaker who also has experience in Australia. In this video, Mark takes you to the breathtakingly beautiful Western Cape vineyards where our Chenin Blanc grows alongside stunning protea flowers, and shares his approach to making a wine that emphasizes “a lovely elegance of fruit,” with “pear, citrus and honeysuckle characters.” The wine will be available in the new year.
