Description

  • Vintage: 2021

  • Taste Guide: Aromatic guava and orange blossom notes that jump from the glass. This Chenin Blanc is dry with hint of sweetness from the ripe apples, peaches and a hint of orange peel on the palate. Unoaked wine hence the elegant crisp finish which makes this a fantastic wine for all occasions.
  • Food pairing: This wonderful wine pairs great with fish, Asian foods and pasta with white sauce.
  • Vegan & Vegetarian Friendly
  • 75cl - 11% - Screwcap Opening

The iconic Aloe Tree image is sure to be familiar to anyone who has travelled widely through the Cape and is an important part of the biodiversity which South Africa is famous for.

"Chenin blanc is well adapted for various soil types, but our premium grapes are grown on medium to lower potential soils. Yield levels are limited by winter pruning and by removing shoots and leaving two or three shoots per spur during early spring".

Once the Chenin Blanc grapes are harvested, they arrive at the winery where the fruit is gently pressed and only the free run juice is used. Using selected yeasts the juice then undergoes cold fermentation at 14 degrees Celsius for 2 weeks before lying on the lees for 3 months. No oak ageing.

Circa £9.99 at various merchants (checked June '24) but just £6.99 here represents really good value!
