Van Niekerk Vintners Sonwater White Blend 2022
Sunlight and water, two powerful forces of nature beyond man’s control. But, when favoured with the perfect balance, these two components create the essence of farming.
Sonwater is an expression of the gratitude experienced when this balance is found by capturing water and sunlight in the form of wine.

Sonwater 2022 was inspired by the famous 1960’s Lieberstein blend and consists of Chenin Blanc and Clairette Blanche. Contrary to its counterpart, Sonwater is not a semi-sweet wine and boast with fresh acidity and a pithy texture. Subtle aromatics of pear, peach, naartjie and herbs while the palate shows great fruit definition and poise – concentrated but not weighty.
Composition: 90% Chenin Blanc, 10% Clairette Blanche
