Every year we make a small batch of white wine named after Joostenberg’s current matriarch and gardener extraordinaire, Gillian Fairhead. This wine honours the women of Joostenberg whose substantial efforts, in a male dominated society, have often been unrecognized. The core of the wine is old vine Chenin Blanc and the blending partners are the more exotic Roussanne and Viognier varietals.
Medium-bodied, luscious white wine. Layers of flavours and subtle wooding. Will develop even more complexity over the next 2-5 years.
