Medium bodied, with a sturdy backbone, this uniquely South African white blend is made in Campher�s honour, combining predominantly Chenin Blanc (39%) with smaller amounts of Sauvignon Blanc (36%), Verdehlo (19%), and Viognier (6%). Meticulously blended after judicious oaking in a combination of new and older French barrels (11 months), it�s truly a labour of love.
Muratie Laurens Campher White
For all its freshness, elegance and focus, the wine�s flavours are complex and intense, ranging from bright lemon, fresh pineapple and juicy nectarine to more concentrated lime marmalade as well as caramel and cream (from barrel fermentation and 11 months of maturation in mostly older French oak). The initial impression is floral (heady honeysuckle) but the finish is spicy (there�s even a pinch of white pepper), with great persistence promising enjoyment over at least five years.
