Lammershoek Barrique Chenin Blanc 2010

Member Review by Erica Landin:

The first time I tasted this I said "wow". The second time I tasted this, I offered to work for the winemaker (he didn't take me, by the way). Such an interesting, rich chenin blanc with many layers of creamy complexity and minerality on top of a good acidity from what should be a terribly hot climate. A fun wine to play with for food pairings or just to drink on its own, well chilled to start. Though a few of his wines are a bit funky, most of what Craig does is absolutely gorgeous. I think this is a future star and trend-setter in South African wine. Watch him!
