ABOUT THE WINE

Adrian & Birgit Bührer took ownership of Saxenburg in 1989, trading their familiar surroundings of Switzerland for the Cape Winelands. They changed their familiar surroundings of Switzerland for a dilapidated homestead in the Cape Winelands. Today, the estate is run by the second-generation Bührer Family custodians: Fiona and Vincent. Their ambition is to shine a light on the Polkadraai Hills appellation in Stellenbosch, as it is one of the most exceptional terroirs in South Africa. Together with a passionate team, they produce thought-provoking wines.

TASTING NOTES

Sourced from cool vineyards facing the iconic False Bay, this 100% Chenin Bland has fragrant aromas of peach, pear and melon, following through to a palate that is wonderfully complex and textured from the lees stirring. An orange rind pithiness adds interest and is beautifully offset by refreshing acidity. 

FOOD PAIRING

Perfect with baked shellfish such as scallops and oysters, but also heavenly with rotisserie chicken

FRIARWOOD SAYS

Found in great numbers in the region, the guinea fowls that adorn the Saxenburg emblem have become symbolic of their winemaking philosophy, and it’s now the heart, the mind and the soul of Saxenburg.
