Chenin Blanc Fermented in Clay 2018, Catherine Marshall Wines

£23.20 per bottle

About this wine

Part of the Fine Art Collection, Catherine Marshall’s Chenin Blanc fermented in Clay reflects a sophisticated approach to a variety that is widely planted in the Western Cape. A cool site in a unique part of the Elgin Valley was selected specifically for its flinty, wet stone attributes that would enhance restraint and classical notes with a modern new world touch.  Fermented in handmade, old world styled clay amphorae, these key attributes afford a wine with broad layers of ripe pears, fresh stone fruit and white flowers on a canvas of flinty, wet stone that contributes to the overall texture

RECOMMENDED FOOD PAIRING: Seared salmon or tuna, scallops, barbecued firm fish, Sushi, Indonesian styled cusine, poultry, tempura prawn and vegetables or a lemon infused pea shoot/young stem broccoli risotto

RECOMMENDED BOTTLE MATURATION: The wine is approachable in its youth with fresh, bright aromatics and may age well for up to 8 years. Primary fruit aspects include white pears, fresh nectarines and may evolve into almond paste, baked apple and spicy cardamom notes

Add to this list Stellenbosch in South Africa and the picture is complete. A waxy, citrus and cream styled white variety with stunning acidity and natural balance, it can produce deeply-flavoured wines from dry through to botrytis-affected sweet styles. It is a natural in every sense and in the hands of the greatest growers in South Africa shows the shimmering potential of the Rainbow Nation on the world stage."
