    About Alheit Vineyards

    Alheit Vineyards is most uncommon for a new producer to achieve the desirable epithet of “cult” status so quickly, but Chris and Suzaan Alheit’s first vintage of Cartology brought an almost hysterical level of interest from the fine wine world - not a sphere prone to hyperbole! 

    Neal Martin (Vinous) was, and continues to be, just about as ardent an advocate for the Western Cape winery as one could imagine: 

    “So, you want a headline "a snappy eye-catching shelf-talker"? Here’s one. “Chris and Suzaan Alheit have made South Africa’s greatest debut Chenin Blanc.” Having chanced upon his wine in Cape Town, I met the very jet-lagged winemaker who had just landed at Heathrow. Despite his understandable lethargy, his unbridled passion came through, a man determined to seek out the best sites for Chenin Blanc and create a world-class wine. Having cut his teeth in the Mosel, Saint Emilion (at Chateau Angelus) and Napa Valley, Chris is obviously not hidebound by tradition, abiding by his own beliefs: low yields, old vines (though not necessarily the oldest), minimal use of sulphur and ageing in used oak between 4 and 12 years. He told me of his plans to seek out single vineyard sites and create a Burgundy-like portfolio of “Village” and “Premier Crus.” I have no doubt that he will succeed, although my mind boggles if this is the ethereal quality of his “Village Cru” - Neal Martin (Vinous)

    Alheit Fire By Night Chenin Blanc 2021 (6x75cl)

    Tim Atkin MW (98)

    Chris Alheit's recently acquired Nuwedam farm on the Paardeberg is the source of this world-class Chenin Blanc, which shows his determination to "zero out the winemaking" and focus on site. White flower and roof thatch aromas segue into a taut, focused, stony, effortlessly concentrated palate with layers of fennel, oatmeal and green apple.

    Alheit Vineyards Cartology Bush Vines 2017 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (93)

    The 2017 Cartology comes from old bush vines, saw no SO2 addition during ferment and, after a rough settling, was matured in used barrels. It has a very attractive bouquet of dried honey, orange blossom and beeswax, very well defined and gaining intensity all the time in the glass. The palate is beautifully balanced with a gorgeous tangy, marmalade-tinged opening. The acidity is extremely well judged (as it nearly always is) and a touch of stem ginger and rhubarb emerges toward the poised, energetic finish. Excellent.

    Alheit Vineyards Cartology Bush Vines 2018 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (93)

    The 2018 Cartology, a blend of 90% Chenin Blanc and 10% Sémillon this year, is whole-cluster-pressed with no SO2 addition, and matured in used oak. It has a well defined, pure bouquet of dried honey, yellow flower, honeysuckle and lanolin aromas that instantly seduce the senses. The palate is beautifully balanced with a slightly oily-textured opening, the intensity deftly counterbalanced by the fine bead of acidity, and a discreet spiciness toward the finish. This is very harmonious and persistent, an effortless Cartology that should age with style. Superb.

    Alheit Vineyards Cartology Bush Vines 2019 (6x75cl)

    Tim Atkin MW (95)

    Since its first, headline-grabbing release in 2011, Cartology has become a key wine in the history of the new South Africa. Blended across the Western Cape, it's an assemblage of Chenin Blanc with 10% Semillon that’s herbal, textured and sappy with notes of oatmeal, citrus and pear, pithy acidity, subtle oak and a spicy twist. Arguably the best release since 2011. 2021-27

    Alheit Vineyards Hemelrand Vine Garden 2017 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (90)

    From vines planted in 2010, the 2017 Hemelrand Vine Garden was matured in old neutral barrels and cement egg. It has a clean, pure bouquet of lemon curd, albumen and light yellow flowers. The palate is well balanced, with a taut line of acidity, and quite saline in the mouth. The sharp, slightly flinty finish oddly reminds me of a mature Chablis. Very fine.

    Vinous (94)

    The 2019 Hemelrand Vine Garden was picked early in the morning and fermented over two months (nine for the Roussanne). It has a very well-defined bouquet of red apple, fresh pear, yellow flower and strawberry scents, plus hints of chamomile in the background. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity and wonderful _mineralité_ on the finish; there’s something Alsace-like about this cuvée. One of Alheit’s more cerebral wines of the vintage.

    Tim Atkin (96)

    “Bloody sweet” is how Chris Alheit describes this Muscat d’Alexandrie straw wine, sourced from a vineyard that was planted in the 1880s, and boasting 450 grams of residual sugar. Super concentrated, with low alcohol and high volatile acidity, this has flavours of treacle, molasses and orange marmalade supported by freshness on the finish.

    The Van Lill family's vineyards on Citrusdal Mountain are one of the Cape's Grand Cru sites, right up there with the greatest in the world. Chris Alheit's stunning Chenin Blanc, made with "some of the best grapes I've ever seen", hails from blocks ten and 13 and is breathtakingly intense. Pear, passion fruit, rock salt and fynbos flavours are framed by subtle oak and mouth-watering minerality. A great winemaker's interpretation of a sublime terroir. 2023-35
