LUDDITE – Saboteur White 2017


A white blend from Luddite in Botriver. The drought conditions in 2017 made this a difficult vintage to produce as it resulted in lower yields of Chenin Blanc on the farm. Despite the lower yields, it allowed the grapes to have more concentration in flavor delivering a beautiful wine.

The rest of the blend is made up from Viognier and Blanc Fumé (barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc). All components spent 6 months in old French Oak barrels before it was blended.

The final blend is 77% Chenin Blanc, 14% Viognier and 9% Blanc Fumé. Overall notes of white peach, flint and citrus blossom with a well textured palate.

Alcohol 13%
