Asara Vineyard Collection Chenin Blanc 2015 triumphs in Japan



Asara Wine Estate & Hotel is proud to announce that the Asara Vineyard Collection Chenin Blanc 2015 has just won the International Trophy for “Best New World Wine” at the 19th Japan Wine Challenge 2016 as well as a coveted Gold Medal.

The grapes used come from one 20-year-old, 1.9-hectare block of Chenin Blanc at Asara located at 200m above sea level, and just over 15 km from False Bay. A low yield with loose bunches and small berries and long hang time has made for concentration and intensity. 8 tons of post-harvest selection Chenin Blanc grapes were pressed, and went straight to 22 barrels.

Pete Gottgens, Estate Manager of Asara, says, “This wine is the start of the Asara renaissance, where there is attention to detail and an uncompromising approach to quality. This wine is an endorsement of that philosophy and is testament to the new regime in the Asara Winery. I’m really proud of the team and their commitment to this new direction.”

Pale straw in colour, the nose is rich with abundant ripe pear and pineapple with nuances of honeysuckle. The palate is rich and slightly oily, with complex layered fruit,
apricot and peach, on mouth-filling acidity, and the oak imparts a delicate mouth filling structure. It is felt rather than tasted. The finish is long, concentrated and persistent.
