Rall Wines' white wines are a reflection of the winery's passion for crafting pure, uncompromising, and expressive wines. These wines showcase the terroirs of Swartland, the region where Rall Wines is located, and the unique flavors, aromas and textures of the grapes grown there. The whites from Rall Wines are made from grape varieties such as Chenin Blanc, Verdelho, Grenache Blanc, and Roussanne, among others. They are fermented naturally and aged in a combination of old oak and concrete, resulting in wines of great complexity, elegance, and freshness. With their bright acidity, mineral character, and citrus notes, Rall Wines' white wines are perfect for pairing with seafood dishes or simply enjoying on a warm summer day.
Shapely, bright and clear-cut flavours of apple, lemongrass and jasmine, with notes of plum skin and white peaches. A gorgeous, refined white blend imbued with freshness, complexity and extraordinary length of flavour. Beautiful.
About the Winery
Founded in 2008, Rall Wines is a South African winery established, run, owned by a young and independent winemaker named Donovan Rall. Donovan was a significant person involved in the New Wave Movement in South Africa. He changed the winemaking industry of the country and ushered it into a positive direction with several other individuals. With his ambitious, amiable, and charismatic nature, he achieved various other feats and accomplishments.
Donovan pursued his education in oenology and viticulture. He did so from Stellenbosch University. There, Donovan studied with David Sadie, among many other famous personas. He graduated in 2005. After that, Donovan spent the following two years working in various vineyards and wineries to gain experience. He remained stuck in the ideas and concepts of harvest applied and implemented all across the globe.
Donovan returned to South Africa in 2007 and started assisting and working under and with Eben Sadie in the region of Swartland. It was during this time that he received inspiration from the grape varietals from the Mediterranean. It encouraged him to develop his distinct label.
Donovan began by working with and focusing on solely two types of wines. It consists of a red one and a white one. He sourced and obtained the grapes from various surrounding vineyards. Gradually, these sites became established at the flagships of Rall Wines. Since the early years of its founding, the winery operated and functioned with the philosophy of keeping all processes humble. For that reason, Rall Wines has a relatively small-scale production.
Rall Wines takes a fresh and unique approach to winemaking and vinification. It allows for the production of high-quality wines with superior taste, flavour, mouthfeel, and personality. In addition, it can get owed to the fermentation process that the winery implements. It is natural with minimal intervention.
