Longavi

Longavi wines is a collaboration between two friends from different continents, Chilean producer Julio Bouchon and South African winemaker David Nieuwoudt who teamed up in 2012 to produce wines in Chile’s Leyda Valley. Longaví means ‘snakes head’ derived from a stratovolcano called Nevado de Longavi and the vine wreath on the label denotes the Ourobos, an ancient African symbol that represents nature’s eternal cycle of renewal. 

Wines on offer:

  • Cederberg Longavi Chenin Blanc

Cederberg Longavi Chenin Blanc

A unique Sauvignon blanc that cannot be compared to any other. Powerful concentrated layers of green figs and gooseberries, with a touch of grapefruit, fynbos and a steely minerality on the palate. A reflection of the cool climate terroir of Elim where the grapes are sourced. Lees contact during the winemaking process creates length and richness on the aftertaste, which will progress even more over the next 2 or 3 years.

Crafted from premium selected vineyard parcels in the Valley of Leyda. A true expression of cool-climate terroir with a breathtaking intensity and richness.

Cederberg Longavi Cabernet Sauvignon

Cederberg Longavi Mabo

A unique Sauvignon blanc that cannot be compared to any other. Powerful concentrated layers of green figs and gooseberries, with a touch of grapefruit, fynbos and a steely minerality on the palate.
