This summery single variety Chenin Blanc is made from grapes grown on the foothills of Simonsberg Mountain, an area located between Franschhoek, Stellenbosch and Paarl in the Western Cape. The grapes are softly pressed and undergo cool fermentation to preserve crisp fruit aromas. The wine is then aged for four months on its secondary lees, adding texture and body to the wine. Something that's needed when you have such ripe fruit and a higher alcohol level. The result is a very drinkable wine with intensely fruity aromas of guava and tropical fruit. The nose entices you into a crisp, dry palate with notes of pear, fresh melon, pineapple and whipped cream.
Pairs beautifully with: Sal Godfrey's recipe for this Fiery Carrot and Ginger Soup, three-cheese pizza, or try with poached salmon.
Cheese pairing: Triple cream Brie, Cornish Yarg or Swiss Gruyere.
Wine contains sulphites.
