Spice Route Coastal Chenin Blanc 2023

R76.00

A buffet table of juicy, tropical fruits! Expressive tropical aromas of guava and passion fruit and a dash of lime on the nose. The palate again emulates a tropical sensory experience with an unexpected addition of canned pears on the mid palate. A beautifully integrated acidity carries the moreish finish.

Our journey of discovery led us to an expressive vineyard in Paarl for our 2023 Chenin Blanc. The grapes were handpicked very early in the morning, which allowed for them to be delivered cold to the cellar, where they were destalked and gently pressed. The free- run juice settled for two days before the clear juice was racked off and cold fermented in stainless steel. On completion of fermentation, the wine was left on the fine lees for several weeks before bottling.

Description

Five centuries ago, the ancient mariners braved uncharted seas to round the Cape of Good Hope in search of exotic spices. Their nerve, dash and adventurous spirit inspire the Spice Route philosophy. Made with the finest fruit, delicately nurtured by skilful hands in the cellar, Spice Route wines are infinitely enjoyable and add flair and flavour to any occasion, like carefully selected spices bring out depth and dimension in a dish!

We celebrate each varietal’s colour and character with our range of wines, and we hope you will enjoy this sensory journey of discovery!
