Alheit Vineyards Hemelrand Vine Garden 2015 75cl
There is also a new single vineyard release this year. Hemelrand Vine Garden is from a new ‘fifth-leaf’ vineyard planted directly behind the Hemelrand cellar and is comprised of 48% Roussanne, 27% Chenin, 22% Chardonnay and 3% Verdelho. The wine is tight and lean and currently not very expressive on either the nose or palate, but one can see the family resemblance to its peers, even though the vine age here is a fraction of that of the other wines. Production is limited at 5,000 bottles, although most has been allocated for the domestic market - we have 18 bottles.
