WineDiva's Review

Concentrated, lengthy, fleshy.
This consistently impressive Chenin Blanc, made from high altitude, gnarled bush vines, was aged in oak barrels.
A brilliant yellow wine it offers potent aromas of grilled pineapples and charred lemon peel, toasted vanilla and cumin, acacia, honey, beeswax and granny smith apples. A juicy entry on the palate leads to toast slathered in rich lemon curd, pineapples, spice, chamomile, and pomelo on the finish. It's a fleshy and supple wine with a snappy palate rounded off with a creamy texture.
Pair: roast chicken or turkey, smoked cheeses and creamy pastas.

Pairs Great with Gone Crackers Roasted Shallot & Herb
