Spice Route Chenin Blanc 2014

This Chenin Blanc is from a vineyard planted in 1978 in the Swartland. These trellised vineyards are planted on a South East facing slope and are dryland farmed. The soils are predominantly koffieklip (decomposed granite and iron-rich clay)

"The first time we have ever harvested this block so late in April, our patience paid off with some botrytis present with the last picking. This added a beautiful dimension to this fantastic grape variety which will benefit from 3 or 4 years bottle age. -Enjoy!” - Charl du Plessis

Bright light yellow color. Complex nose with tropical fruits and melon followed by a flinty notes. The palate is rich and broad, reminiscent of the koffieklip soils, with well-balanced acidity from the first picking

Food Pairings

Given some time in the bottle, this wine will pair well with rich crustaceans or some lightly spiced dishes.
