    Charles Back was a pioneer in the Swartland, the region north of Cape Town in the Western Cape, when he started Spice Route in 1998.  It is probably true that without him the Swartland would still be regarded as a rural backwater. Today, the region is the source of many of South Africa’s outstanding wines, yet Spice Route remains one of the best and most credible producers in the region.  Winemaker Charl du Plessis has been with Charles since 2002 and knows the region intimately. Despite the desert-like conditions of the region, the vines are not irrigated.

    The Spice Route Swartland Chenin Blanc is a superbly complex chenin.  It is bright yellow in colour with aromas of peach, tropical fruits and subtle flinty hints on the nose. The palate is rich and broad, but with a vibrant acidity which carries the flavours onto the lingering finish.

    Wine Style Meter

     

    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.
