Scions of Sinai ‘Granietsteen’ Chenin Blanc 2020


Bernhard: “We are spoiled with plenty of great old Chenin vines throughout the Cape. What makes Granietsteen a unique Cape vineyard is not just the soil, the aspect, oceanic proximity and vine age, but the synergistic effect of these elements in a combination. Here, at Rustenhof Farm, we have Certified Heritage Vineyard bushvines, dryfarmed on weathered granite soils being frail and more oxidative. The aspect faces East-South East. Planted as contours in 1978 on Sinai Hill, panning out over False Bay at 3.5km away. The closest Chenin in Stellenbosch to the Atlantic.”

Bernhard grew up in a wine farming family, on their (previously owned) farm, Helderzicht, in the Lower Helderberg region of Stellenbosch. Here the Bredells had been farming wine for over 160 years – 7 generations – and has essentially been responsible for developing this region. Starting with Peter Bredell’s arrival here in the 1850’s and passed down to his descendants aka “Scions”. Today Scions of Sinai Wines mainly focus on curating these uniquely located vineyards of the Lower Helderberg region (South East of Stellenbosch) around a granite hill colloquially known as “Sinai Hill” – pure wines from a few specially selected dry farmed bushvine vineyards on decomposed granite. Named Young Winemaker of the Year in Tim Atkin’s South Africa 2019 Special Report, Bernard favours a chemical-free approach in the vineyards and the winery.
