Chenin Blanc is South Africa’s most widely planted varietal and the Cape’s signature white. This fresh, vibrant version offers luscious flavors of tropical fruit, melon and honeyed pear, backed by bright citrus flavors. Lively peppery notes and an underlying mineral character shine through on the finish.
Wine Spectator 87 points - A rounded, easy style, with green plum and pear fruit at the core, laced with a hint of makrut lime that keeps this honest through the finish. Drink now. 9,755 cases imported.-JM

Vinous 88 points - Pale bright yellow. Sexy aromas of honey, flowers and stone fruits show attractive peppery lift. Supple, rich and lightly saline in an easy-drinking style; this should be versatile at the dinner dinner. A touch of wood (2% of the wine was fermented and aged on its lees in used French oak) and 4.5 g/l residual sugar give this wine good texture. Try it with a beetroot salad with goat cheese and candied walnuts, or with grilled langoustines.
