Savage Wines Not Tonight Josephine Natural Sweet Wine 2020

First produced in 2018 and only released when the quality is deemed exceptional. With no 2019 bottled, the ‘Not Tonight Josephine’ returns again in 2020.


100% Chenin Blanc fruit grown on rocky sandstone soils on the Piekenierskloof farm of Tierhoek.

Winemaking and Maturation

The grapes were dried for three weeks and then left for five days on skins as whole bunches with regular foot treading. Only bottled in July 2021, the wine already shows a wonderfully pure fresh precision, a vibrant tangy acidity and fabulous drinkability.

Tasting Notes

The aromatics are pure and bright. Delicious layers of dried apricots drizzled in honey, mango chutney, milk tart and custard filled pastries. The palate is creamy and plush, superbly balanced and elegant, neither overly sweet nor clawing with a fine creamy dried peach finesse. A mouth coating glycerol breadth and a long, pure finish with a kiss of granadilla liqueur.
