Bright and vibrant on both the nose and palate, this wine shows concentrated flavours of dried apricots, ripe orange and honey, with hints of white flower blossom. A touch of pineapple on the entry, yet clean and focused, it condenses into a rich finish, filling the palate.

 

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
