Delicate crisp and refreshing wine
The Painted Wolf, also known as the African Wild Dog or Painted Dog - a highly social animal, each with its own ornate markings. The den is at the heart of the pack, a place where Painted Wolves relax and bond.
The Den Chenin Blanc is vibrant, zesty and packed with flavour - a social wine to enjoy with family, friends and good food.
As you "paint your palate" with this wine, you are making a contribution to the conservation of rare carnivores.
A barrel fermented wine with a legacy set by our forefathers. The number on the bottle refers to the age of the Chenin Blanc vines in the year the wine was made. The grapes are picked at optimum ripeness and the juice allowed to ferment with wild yeast in selected barrels over a 9 month maturing period. This wine has a ripe tropical bouquet with hints of thatch and vanilla. A lingering finish with pear and butterscotch on the palate.
Dr Alfred Baumgartner and his colleagues at The Bergkelder developed the original Grunberger in 1953. It was inspired by the famous German wines from the Rhine Valley, an area rich in romanticism and mythology. The clearly identifiable rounded shape of our "bocksbeutel" sets Grunberger apart from all other wines. Grunberger was positioned as the Prince of Wines and with its intense flavours and enhanting aromas it has the unique ability to excite the senses.
