Grape Varietal

100% Chenin Blanc


Tasting Note

South Africa produces fantastic chenin blanc. This wine is typical of those examples produced in the Breedekloof. The older vineyards component was fermented in French barrels for depth and complexity. The wine shows exciting stone fruit aromas. The palate is a delicious medley of summer fruits and citrus.

 

Food Pairing

Go East – Indian, Thai, Malaysian and Vietnamese food go brilliantly with chenin. We love this broad palate of flavourful foods with this wine, especially when the protein is chicken or pork. Vegetarian curries are also a natural fit, as are soft cheeses like brie or camembert.
 

Cellaring

Can be enjoyed now or over the next few years, or cellar at a cool temperature for 3 years.
