Typical Voor-Paardeberg “Swartland” style white blend. All my wines are address specific, from a unique terroir or Appellation as the French call it. WhiteBlack was my first white wine, the first vintage was 2009. Over the last +/- 20 years, pioneering young winemakers, have been making wines with a common style and identity in the greater Swartland region. Over the years, two styles of white emerged, 1. Chenin or Chenin based blends and 2. Non-Chenin based blends containing Mediterranean varietals such as Roussanne, Marsanne, Grenache Blanc, Viognier, Clarette Blanche and so on… WhiteBlack is the latter, usually a blend of Roussanne, Marsanne and Grenache Blanc. Although WhiteBlack is technically from the Voor-Paardeberg region it is in fact a Swartland style white… and traditionally Voor-Paardeberg was a sub-region of the Swartland but for bizarre reasons is now a part of Paarl… The name, White”Black” however refers to a white wine from the Swartland, as Swart translated is Black.
