Donovan Rall White
- Swartland, South Africa
Donovan works closely with growers in the Swartland to secure the best possible fruit at the optimal ripeness and balance. Grapes for this cuvee come mostly from Swartland (Paardeberg) and some from Stellenbosch (Bottelary and Helderberg). Soils are made up of decomposed granite and some gravel.
"The Rall white I’ve made with the most finesse' is its creator’s verdict on the 2017. Marrying Chenin with Verdelho and a splash of Viognier, it’s a subtle, allusive, gently wooded wine with bread and baking spice notes, a hint of peach and a core of chiselled acidity. A world class white wine at an eminently affordable price." - Tim Atkin MW, South African Report 2018
Creamy, with notes of lemon and pineapple and a well-balanced a lick of oak. Rich, broad and textured on the palate. Finishes on a confident, balanced note.
