10 stellar South African Chenins

9. Alheit Vineyards Radio Lazarus

Chris and Suzaan Alheit are all about white wines made from some of the oldest vineyard blocks in the country. Like the Sadie family and several other ‘new generation’ South African winemakers, they’ve profited from the knowledge of influential viticulturist Rosa Kruger, manager of the ‘I Am Old’ old vine preservation project, and in an amazingly short time have established themselves as one of the most respected names in modern South African winemaking.

Radio Lazarus is 100% unirrigated bush vine Chenin Blanc. The current release, from the 2015 vintage, represents a big first for Alheit, in that Radio Lazarus is now made from two special parcels, instead of one. One parcel grows on Ribbokkop (planted in 1978), one parcel on Bottelaryberg (1970).
