As South Africa’s most planted grape variety of any colour, Chenin Blanc flourishes over 9000 km away from its birthplace in the Loire. Tread Lightly Chenin Blanc is unoaked to retain freshness and pure fruit character. Bursting with aromas of peach, melon and freshly cut flowers, this wine conjures images of long summer days in the Cape’s fragrant, untamed gardens.
The newly refreshed Tread Lightly brand is the embodiment of parent farm Backsberg’s sustainable approach. Central to Backsberg is a sincerely generous attitude to the world and a wealth of stories and anecdotes that are human and distinctly heartwarming, which translates into seamlessly excellent wine.
The Tread Lightly range celebrates the lighthearted side of Backsberg’s sustainable initiatives, paying special tribute to the key women who are responsible for growing and crafting these delicate, aromatic wines.
