This is a very impressive wine for the money. Blessed with mouth filling fruit, think of apples, pears and then richer offerings of passion fruit, melon and lemon drops, this has the depth that one would not expect from a wine this moderately priced, with riveting acidity that is mouth watering, driving the wine to an exceptionally long finish. Juicy, fresh with intense fruit flavors this over delivers. This is a great example of why Cape Chenin Blanc can be such a great value, go to wine.

A lighter style, exhibiting notes of white flowers that glide along the crisp pear and melon flavors. Pleasant and well-balanced, this shows focus but could be a bit more complex. Drink now.
The wine displays a bright effervescent colour with a green tinge. The expressive fruit notes bounce from passion fruit to apple and pear. Nuances of kiwi and green melon depict the versatility of the 2019 Chenin Blanc. The youthful multilayered freshness is complimented by a balanced acidity. The 2019 Chenin Blanc claims its delicious super quaffer status that pushes many boundaries.
