Description

Catherine Marshall Wines is an Independent Wine Company producing hand-crafted, premium wines in the Elgin Valley along the Cape South Coast. Their vines grown in cool climate conditions, produce intense, bright, pure and fresh wines of character. “When we started on our wine journey from humble origins in 1997, we have always held the view that our intention is to produce a range of unique wines of excellence and, above all, to have fun doing it. As custodians of such an ancient craft, a balanced, holistic, creative and respectful approach reflects harmony and character in our wines.” Cathy Marshall.
"A very elegant style of Chenin Blanc from a single vineyard site located in the cool Elgin Valley. The wine has been fermented in clay amphorae's contributing a delicious and mellow roundness. The wine offers layers of ripe yellow fruit, pineapple, white flowers with a mineral, flinty aftertaste. It has a delicious mid-weight texture with a long, lingering finish." Kasia Konys, Wine Buyer - Dunell's.

Greg Sherwood MW - Awared this wine 96+ points!


Greg Sherwood MW has recently written a glowing review of Catherine Marshall's 2019 vintage of Chenin Blanc Fermented in Clay, awarding it 96+ points...

"This beautiful Chenin Blanc really is a gorgeous wine. I loved the 2017 and 2018 but this 2019 seems to reach an even higher, more honed level of quality and purity. The aromatics combine intense notes of crushed gravel, dusty baked granite, dried straw and hints of fynbos and white lilies with nuances of dried pineapple slices, fresh yellow orchard fruits and a delicate pinch of fresh lemon peel. The palate is fabulously broad, glycerol and mouth coating with multi-layers of tart bright pineapple pastille, crunchy green pears, lemon cordial and a subtle hint of tart juicy tangerine fruit. Lovely stone fruit characters resonate on the palate with an incredible intensity, a piercing line of acidity and the most agreeable, integrated liquid minerality on the finish. Undoubtedly a great vintage handle expertly by Cathy with just that extra little 'je ne sais quoi' added by the fermentation in the clay amphorae. I’m utterly smitten by this delicious, soulful wine."
