Van Niekerk ‘Sonwater’ 2022


Sonwater was inspired by the famous 1960’s Lieberstein blend and consists of Chenin Blanc and Clairette Blanche. Contrary to its counterpart, Sonwater is not a semi-sweet wine and boast with fresh acidity and a zesty dry palate. On the nose notes of white pear and lemon meringue lingers, followed by a citrus finish.

Naturally fermented
Barrel Aged for 10 months
WO: Swartland
Alc: 12.5%

Christian Eedes, Winemag”
Subtle aromatics of pear, peach, naartjie and herbs while the palate shows great fruit definition and poise – concentrated but not weighty with fresh acidity and pithy in texture. Carefully honed and just very pleasurable to drink. 95pt

Wines by Albert van Niekerk.

“VNV was born in the heart of the beautiful Overberg in 2019, a perfect setting to pay tribute to my family history. It was here that I grew up on our family farm and even though my winemaking journey took me on a wild ride across the globe, it inevitably brought me back to my roots.

“Grapes are hand selected from various vineyard blocks where the focus is more on heritage with an emphasis on quality instead of quantity. The vinification process is unadorned with as little as possible intervention allowing the wine to determine its own course.”

Albert is the assistant winemaker at Thorne & Daughters.
