Whalehaven is a boutique winery that creates small batches of exceptional Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and Chenin Blanc, which sell out fast over the summer. “This is by far one of the best vintages of white wines we have had from Whalehaven,” says Silvana Bottega, marketing director of the Bottega Family Wine Portfolio.
The Whalehaven winery and tasting room are situated at the entrance to the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. Here winemaker Reino Thiart produces an elegant range of classic wines which demonstrate varietal integrity. The name itself suggests the level of devotion and care given in crafting and nurturing the wines from vineyard to barrel to bottle, whilst the ethos is to fashion wines of a superior quality which stay true to the terroir yet demonstrate the essence of their individual varietal complexities.
The full range of Whalehaven Wines is available from the tasting room at Hemel-en-Aarde Village. For more information or to arrange for a private tasting, visit www.whalehaven.co.za. Alternatively, call 028 316 1633 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
