Gustus Chenin Blanc 2019, Darling Cellars

£12.95 per bottle

About this wine

This is a beautiful example of what a Darling Chenin Blanc can produce – the Darling Cellars Gustus Chenin Blanc is a wine with multiple layers of fresh green apple, guava, quince and yellow ripe peaches.  Lees and skin contact add a creaminess to the wine that leaves a lingering mouthfeel, wishing for more.

Ageing potential: Wine with great potential that can age for another 2-3 years.

Food suggestion: Ideal pairing partners are trout, sushi or fresh line fish, roasted chicken and vegetables or a creamy chicken pasta dish.

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."
