How to say it

Stellenroost 47 Barrel Fermented Shenun Blong

Product guide note

Chenin Blanc is the grape variety that was used to make this wine. This wine has been fermented in an oak barrel which is quite usual for this grape variety. The oak adds flavours of creamy butter, alongside the tropical fruit flavours that come from the grape.

Production information

Producer: Stellenrust

Stellenrust bottled its first wine on the farm in 1928. Today the winery is run by the brothers Tertius (winemaker) and Kobus (viticulturist), and is one of the largest family-run Fairtrade estates in Stellenbosch, with 500 hectares of land under vine.  The brothers are committed to following their father’s dream: to give back to the workers, who themselves had given so much to the farm.
