Kaapzicht’s The 1947 Chenin Blanc is one of South Africa’s greatest expressions of Chenin Blanc from a vineyard planted in 1947, making it the second oldest Chenin vineyard in South Africa. From 73 year old vines, the aromatics are super complex and spicy with lovely nuances of wet straw, dusty white citrus, honeyed yellow peaches, fynbos and sweet pineapple confit. There is such focused depth, full bodied plump texture and complexity with fabulous nuances of tangerine peel, satsuma pulp, lychee concentrate and a honeyed bon bon intensity. A super impressive wine with power, breadth and weight but a balancing harmonious acidity. The true personification of delicious old vine Chenin Blanc statesmanship. World class from every angle.
Ageing potential: Drink now and over the next 25 years.
