Tim Atkin über: Hoë-Steen Chenin Blanc

-- Tim Atkin: One of a trio of world-class single site Chenin Blancs from David and Nadie Sadie (no relation to Eben, by the way), this hails from a two-hectare vineyard that was planted in 1968 and is often picked late. Completing full malolactic - such is the acidity in the grapes - this is leesy, focused and taut, with some ferrous grip and a textured palate. 96/100


Galloni über: Hoë-Steen Chenin Blanc

-- Galloni: The 2019 Hoë-Steen Chenin Blanc has a fragrant nose, more resinous than floral, with melted wax and hints of dried honey, plus just a very faint apple blossom note in the background. It revs up with aeration, unfolding to offer linseed and grilled walnut aromas. The palate is very well balanced, demonstrating more weight and concentration compared to the Skaliekop, a beautifully well-judged line of acidity and a slightly creamy texture toward the finish. Very persistent in the mouth. This is a gorgeous South African Chenin Blanc. 94/100


Decanter über: Hoë-Steen Chenin Blanc

-- Decanter: Another of this acclaimed pair’s single-vineyard wines. The site was planted in 1968 between Malmesbury and Darling. Some flinty reduction and wet wool before stone fruit and tangerine on the nose, while the palate is rich and thick-textured with tangy acidity and a savoury finish. 94/100
