Vincent Carême of Domaine Vincent Carême in the Loire Valley, brings his expertise and techniques from France to Swartland in this flagship bottling of which 2014 marks the second vintage. Vincent is passionate about Chenin Blanc, making several styles of the varietal, and he firmly believes that the quality of the wine is determined in the vineyard. He’s found his spiritual home in South Africa and is excited about the promise of Chenin Blanc here and all that it can do.

Swartland, an emerging hotbed of quality wine producers, is to be put on your radar. Terre Brûlée (“burned earth”), from Vincent and Trina Carême of Dom. Vincent Carême in the Loire Valley’s Vouvray AOP, is making a beautiful imprint in this hot, arid District full of dry farmed, old Chenin Blanc vines. This exceptional 2018 vintage boasts hand harvested grapes, whole cluster pressing, use of indigenous yeasts, fermentation and lees aging in stainless steel, and use of new French oak. The aroma, flavor and texture of this wine presents well above its modest price! Ripe stone fruits, golden delicious apple, lime, and honeysuckle are balanced by vibrant acidity and an undercurrent of saline minerality, perhaps from ever present cooling Atlantic breezes. A superb example of Steen and one to buy now!
