Every year Joostenberg make a small batch of white wine named after Joostenberg’s current matriarch and gardener extraordinaire, Gillian Fairhead. This wine honours the women of Joostenberg whose substantial efforts, in a male dominated society, have often been unrecognized. The core of the wine is old vine Chenin Blanc and the blending partners are the more exotic Roussanne and Viognier varietals.

A richly textured, somewhat exotic white wine. Includes all the white varieties planted on Joostenberg Estate and represents a "snapshot" of the vintage and property. Named after current matriarch at Joostenberg and gardener extraordinaire, Gillian (nèe Fairhead) Myburgh. Her passion for gardening and devotion to all plants, indigenous and exotic, served as an inspiration when making this wine.
