This 55-year-old block produces grapes that create a wine with structured texture, character and ageability” explains winemaker Bernard Claassen.

After spending 18 months in French oak barrels, the Credo Chenin Blanc stands out with mesmerizing aromas of honeysuckle, sweet oranges, and a touch of almond. The palate is generous and well-balanced with soft honey and spicy vanilla flavours.
