Vinification: Made in a rich and ripe wooded style, this Chenin Blanc is fermented and matured in 500L French oak barrels with selected wine yeasts. The wine has a good rest for 10 months in the barrels. Together with the age-old traditions of dry land viticulture, it has resulted in a very aromatic and richly textured wine, with characteristics typical of Chenin Blanc grown under these conditions.
Tasting Notes: Light gold. Fruit salad and quince on the nose. Rich and creamy on the palate. Pineapple, stewed fruits and dried apricot. Compex and lots of depth. A fine example of a great South African Chenin Blanc. Drink now or cellar for at least 5 years.
Food Pairing: Pair with dishes such as seafood casserole, chicken curry or fragrant cheese.
