Pieter Cruythoff Chenin Blanc
Riebeek Cellars
South Africa - Western Cape - Coastal Region - Swartland

While Pieter Cuythoff humbly named the valley after his patron, Jan van Riebeeck, Riebeek Cellars feels it is only fitting that this wine, which expresses the best of its valley, should carry the name of its founder. So, in honor of Mr. Cruythoff, this range of fine wine bears his name.

As the unofficial drink of the Riebeek Valley, the Pieter Cruythoff Chenin Blanc is the perfect every day wine that offers uncomplicated quality for the novice and connoisseur alike. Packed with upfront tropical fruit, the nose charms with an abundance of guava and gooseberries. The palate follows through with fruit flavors, balanced by a crisp acid to ensure a fresh and fruity style of wine.

Coastal Region - Swartland
Wine Type
100% Chenin Blanc
Only free run juice was used. After settling and acid adjustment, it was inoculated with selected yeast. Fermentation was colder than usual to capture upfront fruit flavours. Two specially selected tanks were blended and bottled early to enjoy as fresh as possible.

Enjoy well-chilled as a lovely crisp glass on its own, but ideal for al fresco dining and with light summer fare. Beautiful with salads, anti pasti and seafood. Very accessible and suited to almost every occasion, the Pieter Cruythoff Chenin Blanc never disappoints.

Wine Advocate"A wonderful nose of bananas, oranges and melons jumps from the glass of this 100% Chenin Blanc, which is finished with a screw cap. Another great value from South Africa, this wine is medium-bodied, fresh, lively, and a terrific dry white to drink over the next year."
