The Wine: This wine is a great example of modern-styled, South African Chenin blanc, which shows true elegance. It displays upfront green, fresh-cut grass, canned peas and ripe paw-paw aromas with hints of guava and asparagus on the nose. The palate is vibrant and fresh with a linear acidity and an enduring finish.
Food Pairing: Enjoy this wine on its own or with a variety of salads, sushi, seafood and white meats. Chenin Blanc it best enjoyed when it is chilled.

In the Vineyard: The growing season was characterised by maximum hours in the optimal range. Bud break was 10 days early. Spring to November was warm on average, but the entire growing season and most of harvest experienced cool evenings. This was fantastic for both flavour development as well as prominence of phenols like tannins and colour, which accompanied bright fruit and perfect acidity in the final result.
In the cellar: Maturation: None
