Chenin Blanc (Steen) 2017, Donkiesbaai

£23.20 per bottle

About this wine

The 2017 Donkiesbaai Chenin Blanc’s (Steen) tropical aromas of ripe melon, pineapple and mango, followed by flinty minerality, this wine is full of clean and fresh notes. Lees contact adds hints of yoghurt, sour dough and caramel, adding to this wine’s complexity. This 2017 vintage is beautifully concentrated on the palate with flavours of chalky minerality, grapefruit, pineapple, pears, lemon curd and yellow melons integrating perfectly, creating a wine of distinct character with a fresh and lengthy finish.  A first rate Chenin Blanc which highlights the strength of the Cape’s lesser-known appellations.

Very Limited Stock!

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."
