2 - Table
This Chenin has a nose of green and yellow citrus, stone fruit and hint of flint. The palate has
lovely texture with a full mouthfeel typical of the Swartand, and this is balanced by a vibrant
acidity and some pithy character. The wine has a fresh, mineral finish. Drinking beautifully now
and over the next 5 years. Bestserved at 10 to 12 ˚C.

About the Winemaker
Gynore Hendricks was born in Malmesbury, Swartland, South Africa and while her path was not set in stone, like many, she got hit with the oenology bug that makes you curious about all things wine.
Given this, she later got a degree in Viticulture and Oenology from Elsenburg Agricultural Institute. Gynore was then accepted to the Cape Winemakers Guild Protege program in 2017. This highly coveted appointment takes star Viticulture and Oenology students and provides them with internships at some of the area's top wineries and vineyards. Gynore's last internship with the program landed her at the Mullineux and Leeu Family Wines estate. Here, she was hired full-time as an assistant winemaker and offered her own brand to run and manage, 'Great Heart Wines'.
The Great Heart Wines project is led by Gynore, and she is the head winemaker there and shareholder. In fact, all of the staff at Great Heart own a percentage of the business and are paid dividends each year as shareholders.
