Spice Route Chenin Blanc Swartland 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

fruit and oak on the nose, acid and fruit build and last a long time in the mouth. the finish is not very nice, it just peters out. not bad for the price though, i'd buy it as an inexpensive summer white.
