Chenin Blanc (Steen) 2018 Donkiesbaai

£23.20 per bottle

About this wine

The 2018 Donkiesbaai Chenin Blanc (Steen) exhibits a parade of white peach, wax and dried herbs/fynbos aromas. Richly flavoured, the palate is of crunchy apple, yellow fruit and lemon cream underscored by its cracking line of acidity and a persistent saline finish, a hallmark of this high-altitude vineyard. A first rate Chenin Blanc which highlights the strength of the Cape’s lesser-known appellations.

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."
