Spice Route Chenin Blanc Swartland 2010
The Spice Route Chenin Blanc is produced from the Malmesbury region of the Cape West Coast. It is 100% Chenin Blanc. The tropical fruit characters on the nose are backed beautifully by a lick of vanilla and praline notes. The palate is rich, with peach and pineapple flavours, well balanced acidity and a long, elegant finish. Perfect with fish and rich creamy sauces, medium mature soft cheeses and especially full flavoured spicy Eastern dishes. Try it with grilled langoustines with a rich garlic sauce, calamari tempura with sweet chilli dipping sauce or risotto a la pescatore. Can also handle white and red meat, such as brai fired t-bone steaks or spit roasted suckling pig with a honey and chili baste.
