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.
This Chenin is gloriously rich, with fermentation in barrel and lees ageing adding notes of honey on top of the rich oak and dazzling tropical fruit.
Fiona Beckett called Alheit's 'Limited Release' red blend "a joyous, vividly fruity cinsault-based blend that you'll love if you're a Beaujolais fan". A light red from South Africa?
This wine is named because it is made in the 'passito' method, where the harvested grapes are laid out on straw mats and allowed to dry for around 4 weeks, concentrating the sugars. Great with pears.
