Natalie's Score: 92/100

Clean and fresh like an early spring breeze. Mouth-watering, medium-bodied and crisp. Terrific white peach and floral notes. I continue to be impressed with South African Chenin blanc: it's a lovely change from other whites. Great for after an evening dip in the pool. Quince and orange zest on the finish. Terrific!

Chenin Blanc food pairings: Asian chicken salad, pork tenderloin, linguine, snap pea soup, avocado and papaya salad.

Neil Phillips rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

I found this muted at first nosing, with an austere minerality and unripe green grapes - but after a bit of time it really opened up. (Perhaps initially served a tad cold.)

Honey, chamomile, white flowers, orange peel, light caramel.

Crisp lemon & lime on the palate, only slightly creamy, with hints of marzipan, almond.

Medium finish, the acid is perfectly balanced.

Tasted June 2014.
The 2012 vintage of this South African Chenin Blanc features some lovely creaminess and lanolin-lemon through the core. The vines for this wine are all over 30 years old. - Community Wine Reviews
