Reviews and Ratings

Neil Phillips rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Medium+ intensity with heady floral aromas (chamomile, honeysuckle), ripe nectarine, pineapple, pear, melon, grapefruit, lemon peel, toasty butterscotch, plus a mineral note and cold cream.

On the palate, dry with medium body and well-balanced acids and alcohol. Ripe nectarine, melon, golden delicious apple, star anise, almond, honey and mineral notes. Creamy mouthfeel.

A decidedly pleasant Steen (Chenin Blanc) at a great price.

Tasted November 2016.
Produced by The Winery of Good Hope, this South African white wine is made 100% from the Chenin blanc grape. - 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.
