Blend: 92% Chenin Blanc, 8% Sauvignon Blanc
Pale yellow in color with a hint of green. On the nose, tinned pineapples, guavas, litchi, lemon and lime aromas are abundant. A clean, lively wine with nuances of nutmeg and cloves. Well-balanced and elegant, but with weight and a powerful follow-through on the palate. Stylistically off-dry and lightly oaked - this is an excellent food wine.
Arresting as a chilled apéritif, but can also partner with shellfish, grilled tuna, lemon and herb roast chicken, vegetable stews, bobotie: South African/Malay dish of baked savory mince served with saffron rice, and lightly spiced dishes.
I am no wine expert, but I know what I like. I prefer dry whites, but I hate any bitterness. This wine is delightful! Excellent with light summer dishes of all kinds.
Expected more, but at least somewhat quaffable. Their SB of the same vintage was TERRIBLE, so at this wasn't.
