About this wine

Darling Cellars Old Bush Vine Chenin comes from their renowned old bush vines which are selected for their uniqueness in prominent terroir flavours.  The 2017 Old Bush Vine displays a beautiful medium light straw hue in the glass, balanced off with an incredible minerality freshness. This wine shows many different layers and immense complexity. The palate has great length with undertones of orange peel and yellow peaches. Definitely an outstanding wine to drink on a special occasion. This elegant wine will drink well now but will increase in quality between 3 to 5 years. Pairs well with fish, prawns and white wine sauce, seafood risotto, pork or chicken satay, scallops, sashimi, salads with goats’ cheese, spring vegetables such as asparagus and peas.

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."
