Miles Mossop Introduction Chenin Blanc 2021


From unirrigated bush vines in Stellenbosch and Swartland.  A remarkably complex and immensely satisfying wine at this price, a testament to the versatility of Chenin Blanc. Aromatics of lavender honey, quince, apricot, nectarine and jasmine. Intense and bright, with zingy citrus, tangy apple and a lovely mineral finish. There’s structure, quite tight in fact, complementing the richness of the fruit. An incredible wine for a whole variety of cuisines and occasions. Waters Wine Co

Producer Profile

Miles Mossop released their first wines in 2004, sourcing all the fruit from exceptional vineyards across Stellenbosch. Time has broadened horizons and expanded the range, with Swartland fruit coming into the mix. This is very much the archetype of modern South African wine producers, with an emphasis on classic European styles and unique blends that are only found in South Africa.

The range is divided into three tiers. The Introduction range comprises a red and a white, bistro wines of exceptional expression and value.

The Chapters range is from potentially one-off parcels and is extremely limited, usually only around 500 bottles of each are made.

Finally the Family Range, named after Samantha and Miles Mossop’s children and other family members. Their first ever wine, Sakia is named after their eldest daughter and is a classic South African white blend. Max is a classic Bordeaux blend, the fruit sourced from Paarl and Stellenbosch. Kika a late harvest botrytis chenin blanc of remarkable freshness and delicacy considering the 180g/l of residual sugar.

Low yields, old vines and great sites are the beginning and the heart of Miles Mossop wines. Grapes are handpicked and sorted. Natural fermentation, no additions accept sulphur, and bottled without fining or filtration. They are richly flavoured wines of freshness, detail, weight and texture, yet with an uncanny ability to deliver fine tannins and precise structures.
