Stellenbosch Vineyards Limited Release Therona 2018

Therona was developed by Professor Christiaan
Johannes Orffer of Stellenbosch University during the
late 1950s. The conception of merging Crouchen
Blanc with Chenin Blanc was performed with the aim
to increase the standard of quality in locally produced
Chenin Blanc.
Although there are very few producers of Therona, its
limited plantings amplify the uniqueness of this grape
varietal that holds the prospect to create a great quality
single cultivar wine.

The vineyards

Made from 100 superior Therona vines that our
winemakers sourced on the foothills of the
Stellenbosch Mountains. Handpicked at optimum
ripeness.

The winemaking

Hand sorted and pressed in a manual basket press.
Naturally fermented in barrel and allowed to age for
five months in second fill French oak barrels on the
lees.Only 900 bottled were produced.

Winemaker’s comments

Grown in the South African climate, Therona offers a
great quality wine – even in very dry and warm
conditions. It produces a aromatic wine that delivers a
floral bouquet permeated by flavours of peach and
green apple, with a hint of vanilla on a well-rounded
palate.

Maturation potential:

The wine can be enjoyed now, but will benefit from
bottle aging for three to five years.

Food pairing

This wine will pair well with most fish or poultry and is
an ideal match for spicy curries. Serve at a cool room
temperature.

SUITABILITY FOR VEGETARIANS OR VEGANS
