Percheron Chenin Viognier has been created as a result of a long standing relationships with traditional growers. Sourced from 40 year old bush vines the Chenin is a true national treasure.

About the Producer:

Boutinot South Africais driven by a 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 Boutinot to South Africa in 1994, where they pioneered the ‘wild yeast’ 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!!

The winemaking team is headed up by Marinda Kruger-van Eck, who confesses “We put as much, if not more, thought and effort into making our entry level wines as our premium ones”. The key is knowing the characteristics of each plot, understanding the benefits each grape can bring, and using this information to break rules and push boundaries. “I use a combination of my knowledge and love of nature and science to create versatile, expressive and food-friendly wines from this wonderful country”. “The whole of the Cape is our vineyard”

Food Match:

Grilled prawns with plenty of garlic and chilli, whole lemon sole fried in butter and also delicate freshwater fish dishes.
