The Vrede en Lust Kogelberg Chenin Blanc is a full-bodied white wine, which, with its wonderful citrus notes and nuances of orange peel, develops classic aromas of this grape variety. On the palate, the wine is rich and fruity with a hint of honey. This makes the Vrede en Lust Kogelberg Chenin Blanc an ideal white wine to accompany a meal. Above all, creamy and spicy dishes go particularly well with this wine, which has matured for ten months in French oak. The Vrede en Lust Kogelberg Chenin Blanc owes its name to the vineyard of the same name in Elgin, which supplied the grapes for this expressive white wine.

Vrede en Lust – run by the Family Buys

Since 1996, the family Buys runs Vrede en Lust with a constantly growing success. The Buys are the 17th owner of the estate already, but it was them that have given the winery the required consistency and quality that have made it one of the most beautiful and interesting ones in the whole of South Africa. After an extensive renovation and conversion, Vrede en Lust can finally realise its full potential and has been doing exactly that for some years now. Susan Erasmus, one of the few female winemakers in South Africa, has managed for eleven years that Vrede en Lust is now a permanent part of the elite of South African wineries due to her perfectionist approach. Karlin Nel who has been Susan Erasmus’ assistant took over the position as head winemaker in the youthful age of 26 years in autumn 2017.

Breathtaking Location and emotional Wine
