Stellenbosch Vineyards Limited Release Therona 2019


About The Wine

Therona was developed by Professor Christiaan Johannes Offer of Stellenbosch University during the late 1950s. The conception of merging Crouchen Blanc with Chenin Blanc was performed to increase the standard of quality locally produced by Chenin Blanc. Although there are very few producers of Therona, its limited plantings amplify the uniqueness of this grape varietal that holds the prospect to create a great quality single cultivar wine. It produces an aromatic wine that delivers a floral bouquet permeated by flavours of peach and green apple, with a vanilla hint on a well-rounded palate.
