Sundowners in the Swartland with Andre Bruyn
Andre Bruyn Interview – SUNDOWNERS IN THE SWARTLAND☀️🍷
3RD JUNE 7pm - BOOK ONLINE @ LOVEWINE.JE
Join us online and enjoy an interview with Andrew Bruyn of City on a Hill, all the way from the Swartland, South Africa.
André Bruyn, assistant winemaker to David and Nadia Sadie, started making wine under his own label City on a Hill in 2015. André wants his wines to be very specific to their site and soil type. His white grapes come from 35 year old dryland vineyards in the Paardeberg Mountain, planted mainly with Chenin Blanc. Farming is sustainable with some organic and biodynamic practices used. The granitic soils enhance the stony/mineral attributes of the grapes giving rise to a focused and linear style.
The wines are fermented naturally in old oak barrels to enhance the sense of place, and are bottled unfiltered. The White Blend is a blend of 92% Chenin Blanc with 8% Viognier and spends 10 months on lees. He also makes a 100% Chenin Blanc, a selection of the best barrels reflecting the restraint and linearity of the Paardeberg.

- City on a Hill White Blend (Chenin Blanc & Viognier) 2016
