The classic Chenin Blanc grape makes South Africa’s signature white and this wonderfully fresh example shows you why. Extra concentrated thanks to previous drought stricken vintages, it’s bursting with ripe, sunny pineapple fruit with lemony zip.
"Dry, refreshing, lovely. This is one of my favourite whites"
Online Review For the 2018 vintage
Chenin Blanc has its roots in France’s Loire Valley, but is now proving to be the white wine star of South Africa. Even in the heat, it displays vibrant fruit and crispness, with delicious intensity if yields in the vineyard are kept low. This white is from a top cellar in Franschhoek, the food and drink capital of the Cape, and was created to honour the contribution of French Huguenots to the country’s wine industry. Head winemaker at the cellars is JD Rossouw, who has crafted this fine Chenin using a special yeast to slow fermentation and capture all the dazzling lemon and pineapple flavour of this stand-out, hot and sunny vintage. It’s great solo and perfect, too, with foil-baked white fish, smoked chicken salad or spicy Thai dishes.
