Food Pairings for Spice Route Chenin Blanc Swartland
The good winter really helped this older vineyard and resulted in a good, healthy crop. With it being over 30 years old, a yield of 6.8 tons/hectare is actually very high. The oaking is subtle making the wine approachable early on, but it will drink well up to at least 2012. Charl du Plessis
Light straw colour. Ripe pineapple notes lead a complex tropical nose with lightly spiced apple flavours hinting at gentle oaking. Palate is medium bodied with balanced acidity. Rich apple and pear flavours with hints of orange peel show on the long, creamy finish.
