The Welder, Noble Late Harvest is made from the most widely cultivated variety in the Cape, Chenin Blanc. Chenin Blanc is characterised by its versatility – It has the ability to produce wines from a wide spectrum from sweet to dry, to sherry and even sparkling wine.
This wine is made from a single vineyard which undergoes careful canopy management to ensure we achieve optimal natural sweetness as well as natural acidity. This is achieved by opening one side of the canopy so grapes are both exposed and shaded throughout the day.
Often asked, “where does the name come from?”, Well it is named after our Winemaker, Arco Laarman, who bares the nickname, The Welder.
