Critic Reviews
92 points, Decanter
“Peaches and cream with apple dust and lifted scents of dried apricots and creamy vanilla. There is incredible precision and focus on the palate with a seamless elegance, a weightless concentration and fabulous length.”

91 points, Tim Atkin MW
“Vineyards that are all over 35 years of age supply the fruit for this creamy, lees, old barrel-fermented Chenin Blanc that’s rich but not over-ripe, with flavors of pear, passion fruit, and citrus and good underlying structure and minerality. 2022-25”

89 points, Vinous
“The 2021 Chenin Blanc comes from two parcels of old bush vines in southern Paarl. It has a perfumed nose with citrus fruit, touches of Mirabelle and shaved almond. The palate is well balanced with good depth, lightly spiced with touches of orange rind and apricot, and hints of ginger on the finish. Enjoy this over the next four to six years.”

"This silky white has some fleshy weight to it, with pretty accents of heather and spices playing off baked melon and crushed hazelnut flavors. Clean and fresh on the lightly toasty finish. Drink now. 4,650 cases made, 1,000 cases imported."

About The Winery
Lievland, directly translated, means 'love land' and there are few who come to this farm that aren't charmed by its bucolic beauty. Twenty years ago, Lievland was considered one of South Africa's top estates. José Conde and Tyrrel Myburgh, partners in MAN Family Wines, purchased the farm in late 2017 with the goal of resurrecting it to its former glory. Today the winery produces a range of three wines: Pinotage, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Chenin Blanc.

'The first time we visited the farm, we were struck by two horses that had adopted a baby springbok. This touching scene inspired our label: Cupid, the god of love, riding a springbok, South Africa's national animal.'
José Conde, director
