Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chenin Blanc from South Africa is fantastic. It opens with a mild pear like bouquet with a hint of Good n Plenty in the background. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, smooth and lush. The flavor profile is a tasty mild Bartlett pear with nicely integrated gentle oak. I also detected just a hint of faint minerality and apple. The finish is dry and its flavors sail away so nicely. This wine is extremely food friendly and I would pair this wine with pan seared rainbow trout drizzled with butter. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This show stopping white displays effusive aromas of white flower, stone fruit, honey and toast which erupt into opulent flavours of pear, orange blossom, caramel and spice. It's a world class offering that strikes a brilliant balance between lush fruit and crisp, mouth watering acidity.
