This 100% Chenin Blanc offers an amazing array of tropical fruits, showing the complexity the Cape has to offer. A delicate, perfumed nose balances the crystalline structure and moderately full-bodied palate, completely unhindered by any oak. A hint of almond flakes and sprinkle of spice adds texture and depth. A lively, spritely and juicy wine that builds and builds to finishes in a creamy pina-colada cocktail-swirl.
Wine Advocate 88 points - The 2011 Big Easy (White) is pure Chenin Blanc fermented in stainless steel. It has a lovely nose of powdered chalk, dried apricot and grapefruit that might benefit from a little more delineation but has great intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with fine acidity, attractive resinous notes and touches of dried apricot and peach towards the “fluffy finish. Drink now-2015. (Dec 2012)
