Winemaker's Notes:

To make this Chenin Blanc, Protea's winemakers step smartly aside and allow the essence of the remarkable, too often underappreciated Chenin Blanc grape to arrive in the glass with rich fruit and verve. With hints of pear, citrus and honeysuckle this wine is created in a lighter, more accessible style.

And the unique and striking bottle with its paisley design is sure to make a statement on your table!

About Protea:

Protea makes wines that dare to be exotic and beautiful, in every way imaginable. You'll see this right away as you discover their uniquely crafted bottles made by designer Mark Eisen. The paisley and Cape Dutch themes on the bottles speak to Protea's South African roots, but more than that they transform the bottles from mere containers to objects of beauty and contemplation. A bottle of Protea won't just sit on your table, it will enliven the table – and probably spark more than a little conversation. The inspiration for the brand is the protea (PROH-tee-uh). It's South Africa's national flower, and it got its name from the shape-shifting Greek god Proteus. These wines are just as exotic and special as the name suggests.
