Joostenberg is a small, family-owned and run wine farm, in Muldersvlei on the border of Paarl and Stellenbosch. First established by a Swedish settler in the late 1600s, the farm was bought in 1879 by the Myburgh family, who have been here ever since. In 1999, after several decades when the estate sold its grapes to a local cooperative, 5th generation brothers Tyrrel and Philip Myburgh reprised Joostenberg’s long winemaking tradition. Their aim was to create wines with individuality and a sense of place, made as naturally as possible, with respect for the environment.
Exceptional Chenin Blanc, a delicate wine with a complex array of aromas and flavours. Hints of baked apple, honey and flint stone. The palate is elegant and marked by a subtle, creamy texture.
