Chenin Blanc 2017, Spice Route

£13.45 per bottle

About this wine

Spice Route Chenin Blanc is from 40 year old vines displaying a complex nose with tropical fruits and peach followed by flinty notes. The palate is rich and broad, reminiscent of the koffieklip (decomposed granite and iron-rich clay) soils, with well-balanced acidity from the first picking.  Given some time in the bottle, this wine will pair well with rich crustaceans or some lightly spiced dishes.

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."
