OLD AS THE HILLS

Stellenbosch Hills marks a milestone in 2020: 75 years in business. The release of its most recent white wines, chenin blanc and sauvignon blanc, brings the Stellenbosch Hills white wine tally to four. They join the show stopping Sense of Place Anna Christina MCC 2018 and 1707 Reserve White 2019 as the wines to stock up on for summer.

The grapes that produce Stellenbosch Hills’ wines are sourced from farms located in the world-famous wine-producing region known for the diversity of its rich agricultural soils and moderate, Mediterranean climate.

The Stellenbosch Hills Chenin Blanc 2020 was handharvested in the Lynedoch area. In glass, the mediumbodied, balanced wine shows prominent fruit flavours of passion fruit, melon, green apple and litchi with a hint of lemon zest and good crisp acidity. The winemaking team recommend pairing it with dishes like spicy prawns, grilled fish, chicken à la king and pasta.

The nose of the Stellenbosch Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2020 shows green fig, gooseberry and melon but it’s full-bodied and crisp with a lime zest acidity in the mouth, with hints of guava and asparagus. Also best served chilled, the wine is great on its own or with grilled fish and a salad trio of tomatoes, fresh basil and mozzarella.
