White, 2014
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Established in 2008, owner and winemaker Donovan Rall is one of the driving forces behind the South African fine wine revolution. His philosophy is a simple hands-off approach, with each parcel allowed to mature and ferment naturally in order to reflect the character of each vineyard. Today his wines have a cult following and sell on allocation around the world.

'Super, silky, naturally fermented blend Chenin, Verdelho, Chardonnay & Viognier from Swartland & Stellenbosch. 14 has mineral texture & depth, with astounding balance, surreal length of flavour. Supportive older oak & seamless acid spine underlie poise in a salty-tang finish. – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2015, 4.5*

'Rall's 2014 White Blend, made up of Chenin Blanc, Viognier and Verdelho, has a very closed nose that needed considerable aeration before it deigned itself with its presence. Subtle resinous notes, yellow flowers and a hint of dried honey eventually emerges. The palate is fresh and crisp with a light viscous texture, with the acidity perfectly judged and underpinning a subtle passion fruit-tinged finish, which is utterly irresistible and so nuanced. This is another outstanding drop of fermented grape juice from Donovan Rall.’ – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (November 2015), 94/100
