The Kogelberg Chenin Blanc is from a registered single vineyard named after the Kogelberg block from the Elgin farm, Casey’s Ridge, belonging to Vrede en Lust. The first bottling of a single varietal Chenin Blanc was in 2011 and received a Gold Michelangelo Award just prior to its release. As far as could be established, this wine is currently the only single varietal Chenin Blanc produced from fruit certified as a wine of origin Elgin. The 2015 vintage was awarded a silver medal at the 2016 IWSC.
The Kogelberg Chenin Blanc 2016 was awarded a Double Platinum award at the 2019 National Wine Challenge. The 2017 Chenin Blanc received the Top 100 & Double Platinum awards at the National Wine Challenge.
