Launch of Carl Everson Chenin Blanc

On Monday the 10th of June we launched our Heritage Range with the Carl Everson Chenin Blanc 2012 being the first addition to this premium wine range at Opstal. Made from 33 year old vines, naturally fermented and matured in old oak French barrels with minimalistic cellar intervention, the Slanghoek terroir is brought to the fore in this new release premium Chenin Blanc.

We had wine media guests and friends attending the event. Among them David Sadie (Swartland Independent winemaker who helped out winemaker Attie with this wine) and the guys from Fanakalo who designed the label.

In the backroom staff we had La Colombe sommelier Ewan Mackenzie who helped with the setup of the menu for the day, keeping in mind what works best with the Chenin and then he also helped in the kitchen with all the prep work and execution beforehand and on the day.

The day was great fun and the Chenin and food served was enjoyed by all. We are expecting big things from this wine and Monday was just the start…
