Rall White 2018

5 Stars in Platter’s

”The Rall white I’ve made with the most finesse’ is its creator’s verdict on the 2017. Marrying Chenin with Verdelho and a splash of Viognier, it’s a subtle, allusive, gently wooded wine with bread and baking spice notes, a hint of peach and a core of chiselled acidity. A world class white wine at an eminently affordable price.”  – Tim Atkin MW, South African Report 2018

Varietal Composition: 60% Chenin Blanc, 35% Verdelho and 5% Viognier

The grapes are fermented in French oak, and aged on lees for 10 months.

’As he did in 2017, Donovan Rall made his signature white wine without any Chardonnay, going for a 60/35/5 blend of Chenin Blanc, Verdelho and Viognier from the Swartland and Stellenbosch. Firmly established as one of the best blends in the Cape, it’s still youthful and primary, but has stony reduction, fine lees and a medley of pear, citrus and stone fruit. 2021-26.’ – Tim Atkin SA Special Report 2019, 95/100
