Winery of Good Hope Chenin Blanc 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

This Chenin Blanc is something quite special and was recently voted “Best South African Unwooded Chenin” by Wine Enthusiast Magazine. The wine is made from low yielding old bush vines located in the Helderberg area. Kept on the lees with regular batonnage it is at once rich, spicy and honeyed but also balanced with a mineral undertow. Honeyed apples swarm out of the glass followed by poire William and sweet quince; the texture of the wine is admirable - mouth-coating beeswaxy fruit with sweet cinnamon.
