Natalie's Score: 91/100

This is a great example South African Chenin Blanc with seductive aromas of Asian pear and something I can only describe as black apricot. Oak imparts baked bread and wraps this wine beautifully. Baking spices on the finish of this exotically wonderful wine. Pair with mild curries.

Chenin Blanc food pairings: pizza, white fleshed fish, mild sausage, Greek salad, game.

Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

Clear, lemon colour in the glass. Intense aromas of pineapple, mango, citrus, smoke, oak, and a funky greenery. Warming alcohol over the tropical fruit driven flavours. Medium+ acidity.Light-bodied. Long alcohol finish. Pair with shellfish, grilled tuna or salmon, herb encrusted chicken. Drink now.
Tasted: January 2015
Chenin Blanc is the great undiscovered, under-valued white wine of South Africa -- and the world. You must try this at least once in your life. This winery was established in 1989 and is part of the wine industry's conservation effort in South Africa. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
