Protea Chenin Blanc 2016

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Floral and peachy on the nose, in fact this smells of orchard fruit blossoms, very springy and fresh though air does bring out some licorice spice accents and heirloom apple fruit. Supple on entry, though with bright acids, this is a fruitier style of South African Chenin, softer wand with more peachy and pear toned meat on its bones. There’s a nice floral quality to this in the mouth, and while it is relatively fruity it retains the firmness and edge of austerity so typical of the grape. the finish is soft and floral again with hints of lavender over subtle orchard fruit note ending with a squirt of orange oil on the finale. This could pair well with a lighter dish, something with a touch of lavender like Herb de Provence grilled chicken perhaps. 87pts
