Boutinot South Africa is driven by their passion for discovery and desire to capture the real essence of South Africa in every bottle. It was the simple love of Loire Chenin Blanc that first led them to South Africa in 1994. Here they pioneered the wild ferment style that has now been adopted by many producers in this region.

Since then they have been exploring the country’s amazing vineyards to make fabulous wines from specific sites and plots that scream location, location, terroir.. Their home-grown South African winemaking team of JD Rossouw and Ryno Booysen drive the energy and enthusiasm for expressing the loveliest wines from their country, along with Samantha Bailey’s expertise in finesse. The key is knowing the characteristics of each plot, understanding the benefits each cultivar can bring, breaking rules and pushing boundaries. Their use a combination of knowledge, a love of nature and science to create versatile, expressive and food-friendly wines from a country that has been making wine for 360 years.

Winemaking: Primordial Soup White Blend

This white blend comes predominantly from Chenin Blanc and Colombard grapes from selected vineyards in the Western Cape. Here the warm Southern sunshine ensures the grapes reach their optimum ripeness before being picked by hand. Then softly crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks. A portion of the final blend is passed through a spinning cone column. Which is a technique which reduces the alcohol level while preserving the volatile compounds which give flavour and quality. This component is blended back to give a fresh and balanced wine of around 11.2%.
