Country: South Africa
Producer: Craig & Carla Hawkins
Grape: 100% Chenin
Bottle Size: 75cl
Chenin Blanc is rarely as good anywhere outside the Loire as it is in South Africa and this wine is no exception. Pure, with a nice weight the wine has aromas of pear, apple and white peach plus potpourri and a touch of earthiness. Light but extremely flavourful and full of zip and zing.
Organic, Vegan, Low Sulfur
