Delheim Spatzendreck 2017

One of Spatz Sperling’s best pioneering efforts. Beautiful, vibrant gold straw hues. On the nose citrus blossoms, quince and honey with a variety of tropical fruit flavours comes to mind. The palate is well supported by intense fruit flavours that is underpinned by a well balance acidity.

The Chenin Blanc grapes are from the “Ou Jong Steen” block situated on the foothills of Klapmutskop. These old vines are unirrigated, resulting in vines that have developed a deep root system over the years that enable it to withstand severe water shortages.
