David Finlayson Camino Chenin 2022



4 ½ Stars 2024 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Fruit from 1960s & 1980s vines, naturally fermented in barrel similar finesse & balance as previous. 22 (94 pts) rich yet understated subtle savouriness to clean greengage & lanolin notes, pervasive minerality & freshness from curtailed malo. Texture still alluringly silky & seductive, polished by year older oak, 10% concrete ‘egg’.

92 pts Tim Atkin MW 2023
Two old-vine parcels supply the raw material for this impressive Chenin Blanc from David Finlayson and Pieter van der Merwe. Subtly wooded and eschewing malolactic fermentation, it has some stony, struck match reduction, apple, pear and green fig flavours and a taut, nicely focused finish. 2024-27
