WineDiva's Review

Complex, impressive, creamy>
While South Africa makes outstanding wines, overall, we don't see enough of them here. This is one we are fortunate to have in our market. Chenin is South Africa's most important grape and they have more planted than anywhere else in the world, and honestly they make it the best. This one suggests oil of lemon, green almond, honey, starfruit, white blossoms and beeswax. It is creamy yet racy with impressive focus and concentration. Lengthy and complex, this is a wine you won't want to miss out on.

Recommended Pairings
