A cult favourite - it usually sells out before it even hits the shop floor. Plush. Smooth. Supple. The blend of Rhône grapes is tweaked every year.
Intense blackberry, blackcurrant, undertones of mint, spice and cigar box on the nose. On the palate are plenty of blackcurrant and cassis, fresh mint, subtle oak and soft tannins. Great with venison.
This is a deliberately modern offering by winemaker Bertus Fourie, who has concentrated on drawing out the coffee-like aromas of South Africa's signature grape. Perfect with beef.
Chenin Blanc has found a home in South Africa and this example shows exactly why with bright flavours of tropical fruit and apple followed by a honeyed yet refreshing finish.
