    The west coast South African district of Swartland now ranks as the Cape’s most exciting wine district.  Here, one of the most talented South African winemakers, Dewaldt Heyns, has finally achieved his lifelong dream to make wine from his father’s farm in the Paardeberg area of the district with his Weathered Hands wines.  “My father’s weathered hands testify to a lifetime of faithful toil among the vineyards of his Swartland farm.”

    Weathered Hands Chenin Blanc is Dewaldt’s latest project, a barrel-aged Chenin made with old vines from his father’s vineyards in Swartland. This great wine, with its lovely creaminess, balance, and perfect use of oak, proves the quality of top South African Chenin.  This wine has a light straw colour and flavours of honey, pear, apricot and delicate floral notes. It has a rich, silky palate with subtle spice and yellow fruit flavours, light oak and a balanced fresh finish.

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
